Thanks for the list, I'm south of St Louis and a Vet as well...I'll keep an eye out for the stuff as I'm looking on CL for spare equipment and such. What sizes are the Exmarks? Are there any distinguishing damage marks or scratches on any of the equipment? I can keep an eye out while I'm out on my routes as well.

OH OH OH! I just had a great idea....

Call FOX2 News or Channel 4. They do these types of stories....

I've seen plenty of stories on FOX2 where a Vet gets his car broke into while on leave and medals are stolen, clothes, a flag or something....They interview the Vet, he/she tells their story and then you have a whole viewing area looking for your stuff. Quite a few of them have had follow ups where the stuff was returned to them, & one a pawn shop took the stuff and turned it over....

On a lighter note it's free advertising as well as more eyes looking for your stuff, and harder for the thieves to sell the stuff.

We should all print out some stickers that say our equipment is monitored by gps.

That's awful. The problem is it's so identifiable they ptobably painted it. Check vacant areas they may have dumped the trailers after they took out your stuff. Notify area service locations in case they try to sell it to then or trade it in. Make some flyers and give them to otger landscapers. Just a few ideas. Dorry it happened to you. I hope you get it all or most back quick. The news ia a Really good idea!!!
