    My neighbor was just robbed. Nothing stolen except guns, ammo, and two shooting bags. The thief knew what he wanted & where they were kept. The guns were removed from their basement safe for cleaning. They were on a work bench (in basement) covered with a chamois, some in various stages of disassembly.

    The guns were;
    1 M12 field, plain barrel, 2 3/4" Mod 12ga
    1 M12 field, plain barrel, 3" full 12ga
    2 Winchester Model 1897's 12 ga
    1 Winchester Model 42 .410
    1 Remington speedmaster .22

    A POS light blue Ford pickup, mid 80's vintage was seen in this neighbors yard during the theft "window". The location was Earleville, a 30 minute drive from Hopkins, Schraders, Kent County Gun Club, Oxford Gun Club, Sudlersville, Millington, WTA, Smyrna Sporting Goods, Millers Guns, Shore Country Outdoors.

    I would greatly appreciate fellow shooters keeping an eye out for "bargain" priced Winchesters, or "package deals" on Winchesters, especially if the seller drives a POS Ford, light blue.

    If we catch this dirt bag, we do not intend to prosecute, if you know what I mean.

    How did the theif know what he was after and where they were kept? Sounds like an inside job or at least someone the owner likely knows.

    Good Luck. I hope you catch the rat bastards.

    My neighbor is having an addition built on to his home. There have been dozens of subcontractors in and out recently. Also, he had a gas delivery earlier that day. What really inhales is that he only had these guns out of the safe for a few hours. He had to leave his house briefly to run an errand & thought that as long as his house was locked he would be ok. The scumbags broke in through his BILCO doors.

    And after that your friend's house with new addition burns down.

    The description of a POS truck fits at least 50% of the vehicles in Cecil County.

    In DelMarVa, what do the courts treat more harshly, burglary or assault?

    When the shithead is dead, the ONLY side told is the victim's version of events.

    Oscar Ray has it right. People really react when they come back home and theres nothing left but ashes. A BIC is your best friend.
