I saw this ad for stolen gear on my kijiji in Charlottetown, thought I should post it in here:

Stolen Music Gear! | guitars | Charlottetown | Kijiji

Here is the text:

I would greatly appreciate it if you kept your eyes open for any of these instruments. These were all stolen from me in Vernon BC.
If you see them please report to the police or contact me. I am absolutely devastated that my family and I have lost everything that we had worked so hard for.
There is a further description on my Facebook page: " Our UHAUL Truck was Stolen ".

I saw this ad on my local Kijiji about 2-3 weeks ago. As I don't use FB, I emailed the gentleman via Kijiji to let him know about our forum and the GC FB page. Got a reply from him the same evening.

Certainly not the first unfortunate musician nor the last, when you rent UHAUL they print their name in extra large letters and the scum bags who steal working musicians tools look for these easily identified movers. Hope they can find some or all of their equipment.

that really sucks, did he post any details about how they stole the truck?

I cannot see anything past the intial splash screen as I'm not a facebook user

but it would be good to know what happened

I will keep my eyes out for any of that stuff. poor guy!!

I think of crap like this every time I see a 7 passenger van with a cargo trailer behind it. I know some gigging dudes in Vernon and Kelowna, I'll forward this.

Nothing has ever turned up. Whoever has this equipment must know that it was stolen when they bought it. Im really upset at how not a single item has ever been found.

Bumping this as maybe someone somewhere sometime will find something.
