Cops just busted the thief of a friend's gear

God, it's nice to see the police actually do something...just watched them bust this guy who was selling a friend of mine's gear that he'd nicked on craigslist...there was one unique thing on there that was rare enough and he'd been stupid enough to put large enough pics that you could see what was what and that the scratches etc. were the same, so my friend rang this guy to meet at a different studio to sell the gear to him and four detectives waited around the corner and arrested him on the spot.

Was just like CSI and everything (Cops swooped in damn quickly once they'd recognised the guy).

The cops might do jack sometimes, but if your gear is ever stolen, there IS hope. thumbsup

I think this may have been the first story ive ever heard of someone actually getting their gear back. This is awesome news.

man, you'd be surprise how much stolen property is recovered but never re-claimed by the owners. Althought most police depts don't make an efford in contacting folks or know who they are.
