A friend of mine who worked at an equipment dealer had a bunch of new equipment stolen out of the back of his vehicle parked overnight at a hotel. I think it was about $175,000 worth. They got it all back from a pawn shop.
When I worked for the big city we got a call one day from the Wild dealer in the area that someone brought in a T-16 for service that was listed as stolen from the city. When the person who brought it in was told it was stolen he just turned around and walked out without an argument and without giving his name.
