    Just a heads up in case anyone tries to sell used gear that seems "fishy":

    Stolen from me in the Portland OR area:mad::

    Loomis Streamdance GLX 5wt in green rod case

    Galvan Torque 5 in light bronze anodized

    Echo DecHogan 6126 6wt Spey rod

    Galvan Rush 8 in black

    William Joseph large wader bag (Green and gray)

    William Joseph flyfishing coastal chest pack in green

    Blue Simms Rivertek wading jacket

    Various Airflo lines and Rio lines

    and throw in a Magellan GPS unit...

    Thank you for your eyes and ears,
    Adrian
     
  2. Bummer... seeing that the GPS was also taken, was all this in your car???? I rarely leave more than I need and when Im on the water I am usually carrying everything with me, so if my car falls prey to tweakers, there isn't much to be desired.

    Either way, if its was from your home or car, still S.U.C.K.S! Sorry.

    What area were you in? I'm not asking for any secret places, I just think it would be good to know what area these asshole thieves are working. Seems like nowhere is safe anymore.:mad:

    That sucks dude! I will keep my eyes out on CL.
    Good luck finding everything. I would recomend not leaving ANYTHING in your car anymore. Also, a good window tint helps deter people as well. At 15% you can just see the center of my seats (couple shades lighter) and nothing else.

    Aaron that runs the River Run Anglers in Carnation had a bunch of stuff stolen from his van ($2200.00 worth). He says that they've hit everywhere from the Ben Howard to the access in Carnation as well as in Fall City. They appear to be from out of state and maybe taking the gear to sell in California.

    Keep your eyes open for anyone who looks like they're not from around here.

    Adrian,

    If the GPS had your home address stored in it you might want to check with the company that produced it to see if they can remotely erase the data in it. It is pretty common for a GPS to be stolen followed by the thieves using the home address to use the unit to lead them to the house, breaking in there and taking a lot more stuff.

    Around the same time as Aaron was getting ripped off, I saw two scruffy looking (ZZtop rejects?), at the Shell station on hwy 202 driving a maroon 4 door buick with oregon plates. I don't know that they have anything to do with this, and Aaron didn't seem too impressed with the information, but there are too many thefts going on for it to be just a bunch of local tweekers. Plus, they only took the expensive gear from the van, they left the low-cost outfits untouched. They knew what they were looking for.

    Maybe there's a way to scour the craigs lists in the southwest for this gear. Or maybe get in touch with fly clubs local to that area. A thief would be selling this stuff to a very small market.

    Here's an idea. Start a thread on here that's just a list of stolen stuff. No Comments, just a list. If that list could be spread around maybe someone would turn up something, somewhere. At least we would be doing something......

    Just did a little research with mixed results. King County Sherriffs person says that every police department keeps their own property room. That means that even if your stolen stuff was found in a drug raid or whatever, it would be in the property room of that department. Since the departments don't always talk to each other, if the original police report was from one place, and the gear was picked up in another place, the likely end result would be that you'd never get your gear back.

    Unless a list of stolen gear was provided with good descriptions, serial numbers, so forth. The property room people would be willing to compare a list with what they've picked up.

    Bad news is that there are hundreds of police departments and each one would have to be provided a list.

    That freaking sucks Adrian. One of many reasons why I do not fish the Clack much. Next time you are out, make sure to leave a Pit Bull in your car.
