This is horrible...But from what I can tell the person who did this is pretty familiar with the operation. So, I am sure some of this 'stuff' will surface. They knew what they wanted and where it was, they knew when no one would be there, they knew exactly which locks to cut. The perps will be caught, monitor CL in your area and surrounding areas, if they aren't going to use it then they are going to 'sell it' off to make money. Also go to any or the nearest pawn shops, see if any of the equipment has surfaced. Next you may want to go to a local gas station (if applicable) and see if they have anyone unusual stopping by before, or if their cameras captured any 'suspect' vehicles on camera. They will be caught...I hate this stuff...

Good Luck in the recovery of your property...and have your boss put up a cheapo security setup, they work and are a big deterent...

Sorry for your loss. It is bad here also. Churches in our area are being broken into. They are taking computers and sound equipment. The sad part is they do more damage to the building than what they take. The world is full of druggies.

Brian I am sorry to hear of your loss. Nothing worse than a thief. Glad to hear your vendor is helping by giving you a nice discount and spreading out the payments. Hope that everything gets back on track in a short time.

Brian, print out flyers describing the stolen property. Maybe someone will turn them in after offering them for sale.

Brian, you might consider placing a notice on Craigs List-Tools for Sale-even itemize what was stolen. I've seen some before. CL is quite popular and by notifying the thief's potential "customers" , you might just get the right call and be able to ID one of the items.--Sure can't hurt--

I totaly agree with listing on Craigslist that these items were stolen. Place the ad in neighboring cities too. Can you offer a small reward for information leading to the return of the stolen goods? Money talks.

The supplier that you bought them from may have the serial numbers off of the welders too. That could help the police to identify them when they're found.

What may work is to put up a 'wanted' ad in the tools section looking for a 'miller' welder offer a 'fair' amount so as to not send up a red flag or have a friend do it from a nearby city...bingo...
