Stolen Main after cutaway Can't Post

Posting for a friend. We watched the main land in a neighbors front yard. A tandem master seen a tan or gold mini van stop. The home owner said a women got out of the van and picked up the main stating she worked at CSC and that was the last any one has seen. Please view the details posted here:

Mikey is full time video staff at CSC and this is his main source of income. Not to mention he is getting married next week so any help to recover it would be amazing.

He should check with his homeowners or renters insurance carrier. Mine would not cover a lost/cutaway canopy but would cover theft.

Typical thing is that, once it is recovered, the person who stole the parachute, did not take care of it properly and it will have good chance of not being air worthy.

Has Mikey started cruising that neighborhood looking for a gold/tan van? Chances are that the finder is a resident there or somebody else has seen her or the van. Check eBay and Craigslist. Put reward postings on the neighborhood telephone poles with better pics of the canopy. Post a reward on Craigslist and use wuffo keywords.

 I had a friend who had a rig stolen, and he put an advent in the local paper "wanting to buy" a parachute system, with up to 5 grand to spend......

And sure enough, he had a reply. he went around and viewed the rig, which was his, said hed be back with the money, and returned with the cops.

Some thieves are not very bright......

Technically speaking, There is no such thing as a stupid thief... that would be called a "convict"! Smile
