Stolen items
I think we have all read about stolen helis, trailers, shops being broken in to etc. I just don't recall any one posting anything that has resulted in items being returned or the thieves being caught.
Has anyone got any results of anything? Just wondering!

Part of the reason thievery runs so rampant is unless they are caught on the spot they seldom get caught later unless by pure chance.Even if they are caught the penalty is minor so there is really very little incentive to not do it again.Sad but true.

a guy in my club had his hellies stolen from his workshop, 2 Eli Q, a raptor 50 with Quick UK upgrades.and a couple of 14mZ's

He was pro active and went to the local hobby shops and told them, thinking nothing more a week later he got a phone call from a local hobby shop saying someone had offered him a cheap couple of hellies.

SO he set up a sting operation and the shop keeper set all cams up for when he came in, so there was video evidence.
End result he got back the 2 eli Q, and the guy was shocked, the police turned up and arrested him.

The guy from the club Is a big guy ha ha, he was very controlled and did not throw the thief through the window LOL..

The hobby shop were really good kept the thief waiting by stalling him with questions,until the police and the guy from my club turned up to collect.

SO in some cases it does work out, but they are rare..

yeah it was good news, he did not get back all of what was taken, as the guys who were selling it on to the shop were the middle men so to speak.

But with a big forum of thousands of members I am surprised we all don't team up and look out when someone becomes a victim.

Doesn't take much to look around ebay or local shops.

The guy is a member on this forum Darren Heaver, who posts in turbine forum.
