theft

the good thing is he got caught and is in jail....a guy came in and said he had stuff to sell...i went out and looked on his truck said no and went in....just minutes later he stole a big full size iron bed out of the driveway at 10 in the morning, then headed for the highway and broke into our storage building and got a cupboard......he went to a shop in the next town and the women realized he had bashed in their door, ...he was in their driveway when they arrived....so one kept him in conversation like he was a customer and the other got his licence plate called the cops....after a high speed chase he was caught....
they called me and the cops called me ...and our tag was still on the bed...and he was easy to identify....
so it wasnt terrifying to me...for some reason...
..i hate a thief tho....and cant imagine the nerve or stupidity of the guy stealing a big bed 2 minutes after i left the area.... i just hope he doesnt get out of jail....
other than that we had a fine black friday....
with a girl buying most of our 1$ jewelry for her projects.....it was several boxes full....i was going to cover a manniken in it, but hopefully i will get more...

Well, he just thought it was better to receive than give...he certainly had some big kahunas to do it in broad daylight!!!

Sorry that happened to you. I'm so glad he was caught and you will get your merchandise back.It's so hard to understand the greed of some people.

So sorry that happened to you. In the eighties, I managed a store in the mall. The most blatant thing I ever witnessed was a young man pick up a Raikes bear, carry it to the counter, and ask for a refund! So glad you got your furniture back!
