Stolen Equipment Alert
Hi to all,
The Inland Soaring Society suffered a burglary on November 30 resulting in the theft of a custom TD winch and two retrievers, batteries, tool boxes containing chutes, foot pedals, stakes, tools, and more. Also stolen were several aircraft, including an E-Flite Apprentice S 15E with SAFE technology electric powered trainer aircraft and Spektrum DX5 transmitter, charger and 3S-3200 batteries. The equipment and models were stolen from the storage container located on the flying field property of the ISS in Riverside, CA.
The ISS is located in Riverside, Ca and we expect that if the thieves were to unload the equipment, it would be in the SoCal area. The winch is painted bright fluorescent green (almost yellow) with a standard Ford LS motor, single solenoid, belt drag brake, and has line on the spool. The retrievers are "no hands required" type units, custom made and are red in color.
The ISS is willing to offer a reward of $200.00 for solid information on the recovery of this equipment, resulting in the arrest and conviction of the responsible party. If you have information to share with us please PM me when possible.

Sorry to hear of this Mike.
Shamefull is the word to describe some people's behaviour.
I hope the individuals are found and the gear recovered.

Bad News indeed....
I have to think that whoever stole your equipment has no idea how specialized this equipment is....and how limited of a resale market it has! If readers of this forum will contact their email or website club contacts asking them to notify all members and fellow sailplaners of this theft, I have to believe it will be recovered at some point. If any photos exist of the equipment..... that might help jog someone's memory when they see it! GOOD LUCK to you and all ISS in getting your property back.
