Saturday night, August 27th someone parked on the highway 904 that runs through my property and went down the 10ft steep embankment and up onto my property 200 ft then stole over 100 items out of my shop and then hauled it all back down and up the embankment to their waiting vehicle.
They were assisted by my hand truck that they also stole.
I will post the entire list next.

... here's the list
Forgot to include the SSP Canadian border immigration sign that's very rare to come across and a Frankenstein black light poster in a frame from 1970s...
It's over $8,000 retail.
And no, no cameras or even a decent lock to slow them down much but thankfully they were idiots and didn't know what they were looking at because they took $5 oil cans and left $250 oil cans right beneath them and also took reproduction signs while leaving originals.
Things in advance for keeping your eyes out!

Sad that people have to resort to stealing a man’s possessions when there are plenty of jobs available - here’s hoping that karma will prevail!

You were Burglarized,not robbed.Robbed means taken by force in person,like with a gun or knife pointed at you.
I've posted this on a few same themed web pages,along with your phone # because your webpage shows it is as defunct.

Thank you to all!
No updates yet because nothing has been recovered.
Yes I was burgled not robbed. I do still own the website but I just have not done anything with it but yes the phone number does work.
Someone from outside the area volunteered to run an ad for me and I'm hoping for some results from that but still have not heard anything.

Dave ,
I am very sorry this happened to you. I have been burglarized three times at different locations. I have lost pumps, tools, household stuff, jet skis, ATVs etc. not one thing was ever recovered. Very discouraging feeling. I hope you get your stuff back. I have no hope to ever recover my stuff.
Take Care,
Rob
