    Oh, for Christ's sake, this has all the trademark characteristics of a botched robbery. They were seen and filmed, they used a weapon, threatened, tied someone up, left witnesses including themselves, so they likely also left prints and other evidence, and won't know what to do with the stolen goods. So far I would think the odds are good they'll be caught.

    Media (social and otherwise) does a very good job of getting the word out, but it surprises me that some folks don't get that.

    I hope they get what they deserve.

    Peace, Mooh.

    Ridiculous. Makes you question what you're putting up for sale in local classifieds (well...if this person did that).

    Be careful when posting or responding to ads for gear or band members and most importantly NEVER let more than one person into your house..I made that mistake when I answered an ad for a guitarist on Craigslist..two guys from the band came over to my house and were listening to me play, then while i'm playing, out of the corner of my eye I see in the mirror one of the guys is pocketing one of my mics!-the other guys sees that I saw him and motions to him to put it back, which he did..in that moment I realized how dangerous a situation I was in...all turned out well BUT it could have got ugly real fast.
    Stay safe my friends!
