    Stolen!

    Sign in to disable this ad
    It's a very long story but boils down to this .....


    Last Sunday night one of the vehicles at the shop was stolen with a full PA load and a lighting rig.
    $30,000. + in live sound equipment! From a full microphone locker to the speakers and everything in between. Two full pages of inventory I had to turn over to the police.

    Police found it 16 hours later two towns away. Parked and locked without an item missing from inventory, or the personal gear in the cab, or $80. in petty cash on the dash.



    It was a very weird start to the week.

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    I'll say! Close to 40 years of doing this line of work and nothing has ever happened like this before. Never once been ripped off for even a microphone, stand, cable, nothing.

    Of course you're now wondering just WHAT I WAS DOING IN NORTH HAMPSHIRE over the weekend....

    Blame guitaristic and his Tardis.... left me there and I had to hightail it over a couple of towns away to the next nexus to get back home. Seemed the only way. And hey, you didn't have $80 in petty cash, you only had $50 - I tipped some in for petrol...

    Damn mods... can't be trusted...

    It's true! It all started when we wanted to see the future so we went to the year 2330. Turns out, the sun decides to explode that year, so ya know...we emerge out of our blackhole and BOOM there's the sun exploding right in front of us!! So you know we got out there ASAP! We ended up in New Hampshire back in the present, and since we had all that adrenaline and stuff from nearly being absorbed by the supernova, we were a bit hyped up and all...and it just kinda happened! Then it was like "Why the frick are we in this vehicle?!" so then we decided that was enough adventure for one day and left.

    It was crazy!

    That's what the police report stated but I just couldn't believe them. Thanks for clearing all of this up for me guys.

    It looks as though a couple of kids stole the van for a joy ride and then freaked out when they saw what was in it. Maybe they realized they could do "hard time".

    Did the cops get fingerprints?

    Did they hotwire it or just get the keys somehow?
