Heart-wrenching !! That SUCKS! The idiots that did it. will probably dump it for nothing compared to what it means to you. Law enforcement here in Central Ark. wouldn't even bother looking for it. Hope you have a better chance of getting it all back.:madhop::madhop:

Crime is at an all time high and yet they are cutting budgets and it is always the police and fire departments that get cut the most when they are the ones that are needed the most.

I hope they find them Brian and either find your stuff or make theme cough up the cash to replace the stuff.

Sure you don't live here in Atlanta? Sounds just like our nightly news.

Brian, Sorry to hear about this. I have had a few things stolen and as mentioned it sucks. I sure hope they find those responsible for this.

It's far worse than we could have thought. When they called their insurance, Brian & his Dad were told the building contents were not covered....just the building. So the tools were a total loss. I have suffered a large loss before, but not quite to this level of expense.

Brian, so very sorry to hear this. I hate to say it, but did they know right where to go to find the stuff? Almost sounds as if they did.
