It's been a while, but i thought i'd post anyway. (this is copied, pasted, and crudely edited from another board i posted this on in 2004)

My Norman B-20 (6) acoustic guitar was stolen either Aug. 21 or Aug. 22 2004 from near College and University. It's got a Fishman Prefix pickup in it. It's 8 years old, and showing its age. there's a particularly deep scratch above the endpin, and wear in the top below the pickguard.

It was concealed in the car, so I suspect the perp was going for a box of empty beer bottles feeling hopeful. the car was 18 years old and doesn't promise to hold much......so.. i hope it turns up in a pawnshop soon.

it's not worth a huge amount financially, but sentimentally it's priceless, and i've never played a guitar i liked more.

And apparently... the cops had the guy and let him walk away.

some of toronto's finest were in an adjacent parking lot and saw the guy taking the guitar. they stopped him, and he said the guitar was stolen from him by a guy living a couple of doors down and he was taking it back. they went to the house he pointed to and talked to the guy there. he, of course, had no idea what they were talking about, and in the mean time, the guy walked away with my guitar.

they didn't check id, they didn't check car ownership, they didn't question the fact that he's inside a car with a broken window.
