Please keep an eye open for me, Friends

Yesterday morning, on the way to the flying field, My Mercury Mountaineer was stolen. Most of my RC world was inside.

Futaba 9C, 6ch 72mhz, old 7ch UAF.

New Stahl Apache A-36, RBC Panther, Skyhawk, and 120% version, WBK P-51. Ammo box full of assorted 4-5s batteries.

If you see any of these items, on the web, please PM me, or email me at eremington2@cox.net .

Thank you

Sorry about that Steve.
What a low blow. These scum bags pull this $#!+ without ever thinking how it affects their victims.

I'll keep an eye peeled for any of your work popping up on line.

I would start hitting Pawn shops in the hot spots of car jacking's or bad neighborhoods. It's odd they went for a mountianeer but it could of been on a hit list. They may of seen you had items in the back that could be pawned quickly. The problem you will be up against is getting it back from the pawn shop. You will have get the Police involved and a good form of proof the equipment is yours.

Hope you get your equipment back

Thank you for all your concerns, gentlemen. Your responses is heart warming. The place it was stlen from, is a country convienience store. About a mile from our flying field. Everybody either leaves their keys in the car or leaves it running. There is a drug re-hab house about a 1/2 mile away. They know who the thief was. He just was discharged from there. I never leave my keys in my car. But did it here, among other cars parked AND RUNNING. Mine was not.

He must have been watching closely. He had just asked the clerk for a bus schedule to Providence. And witnesses said He headed that way.

The State Police believe he just wanted a ride. And feel the vehical will be found abandoned. Hopefully intact. I just bought it 3 weeks ago. Put 4 new Goodyear Wranglers on it. The nicest piece of transpo, I have ever owned. Still kicking myself in the ass, for not sticking to my common sense, of removing the keys. We changed all our house locks today.

Sorry to hear that, Fuzz. Hope your ride turns up abandoned & all your stuff still inside.

Hi Fuzz,
really sorry to hear that happened to you. Might be worth a call or two to any hobby shops in Providence to let them know to be on the lookout. Hope you get you car back.

I hope you find your stuff Steve. What really sucks is the insurance company probably won't cover you, as if leaving the keys in your car is gives a thief permission to take what doesn't belong to them. It's BS

Steve , sorry to here about you loss . Have you contacted your insurance? I know for sure even if you leave the keys in the car bigger insurance companys like geico will cover it, just not all the Rc stuff inside. Home owners/ renters Insurance is who you would have to try to get to cover the Rc equipment .
