Your doing a good job getting the word out with those craigslist postings. I hope it helps with the return of your stolen items.

I am helping with a situation like yours closer to home.
A neighbors garage was broken into this week. We have video footage of the vehicle used.

Slap on the hands, and listen to their stories of woe and drug problems. When your stuff is taken it does not matter the stories people have as to why, it is just gone.
Good luck with it, and years ago a group of stuff was taken out of a trailer. Lucky for all about 6 months later some found by just getting the word out. People listen and look.

Hope you get it back. I had a break in a few years ago before I had any petro in my new garage. They took all my welders, torches, tools and a race kart. Believe it or not the sheriffs dept recovered almost everything about three months later. I'm sure you've reported it but be sure the authorities have as much detail as you can give them. Some sheriff departments are better than others, hope you have a good one. It just sucks!

I've done about all I can think of tonite. Keeping my prayers said for quick results!

Some of the bigger/unique items include:

Cities Service sign, Fina sign, Sunoco sign, Sieberling Tires sign, Atomic Missle pedal car, firetruck pedal car, hotrod pedal car, aqua/white 1955 chevy pedal car, pink jeep surrey, 36 plastic Coca Cola buttons, 36 Coca Cola Moonshine buttons marked as done by Keith Emory, 48 OK plastic sign rough cut, 48 GM plastic sign, 30 round Texaco plastic sign. Coca Cola cooler, 7up coolers, large selection of various small eclectic toys and advertising items stored in 7up and Pepsi picnic coolers.

Please let any of your local collectors and fellow auctioneers know about this theft! I have placed ads in Craigslist in the major cities around the region that has many pictures of the bigger items but there are so many that whoever stole this trailer will find most of the items very unique and only marketable to collectors.

If these thieves try to move them in the area I should know pretty quick, but if they try to move them in your areas hopefully the grapevine will nip their hopes in the bud!

Pray for my sanity!

Paul , I am sick reading this post! I WILL keep and eye out, look at postings, etc and will get in touch with you should I see anything.
I'm wondering if you had insurance on the trailer and if that also covers the contents. Can you tell me the make and model and color of the trailer? That too might show up for sale someplace.
How about the license plate on the trailer?
Being fairly close by in Atlanta, you never know what might pop up.
So sorry this happened to you buddy!
Dave
