The guy gave a first name, but did give a valid phone number. The issue is whether he and his cohort(s) will return for money from the junk dealer.

I just got back from picking my stuff up that was left there and think we came up with a plan to catch the thieves trailer and rest of contents. Tell them someone bought most everything but paid with a check and it will take a few days to clear. But tell the thief too that the guy wants more like mentioned pedal cars and such. If he takes bait he might return with everything! Hope we can make this work! Keep on praying for further speedy recovery.

Got another lead and confirmation on location of some pedal cars and bicycle. Guy is cooperating and gave location where some of these people are working out of.

You would think the police could come up with a billing address for the phone number?

I hope you mean YOUR trailer and contents?

Ah,just realized there should be a comma between "thieves" and "trailer". Sorry.

Update.

Retrieved so far about 75% or so of what was stolen. Trailer, few pedal cars, custom Moonshine signs, and some smalls still missing. Latest location had good video, names, phone numbers.

What sucks is Police have tomorrow off for Vetrans Day so they won't be working it til Wednesday.

My best luck has been having more eyes watching Facebook for local bartering sites. 2 leads from there returned about 30%.

I would suggest if you use Facebook that you join any local bartering/swap sites on Facebook now. Most are closed groups so you'll never see the ads for merchandise unless you are a member or a friend happens to see the ads.

Quick work has paid off dividends so far for me... and God watching out for me of course!

Since when do the police have holidays off? Hope you get the rest of your stuff back. Sounds pretty positive.

Property Crimes division and other "non-essential" departments.... it use to be they didn't get it off, instead they would get a floating holiday.

Paul... just curious, did your trailer have a lock on the hitch receiver? If so, what type?

I only had a pass through lock through the hitch top. Probably gonna invest in the full tongue lock that covers the hitch.

Most of the trailer locks that are just pass through's tend to be longer because they are made to fit different sizes of hitches. I have considered a boot type wheel lock too.
