Deep gap, NC bunch of OPE stolen
« on: May 07, 2019, 04:42:56 pm »
Guy in the chainsaw repair group.   =  Charlie Sauder 2 hrs

This morning I went to my shop to load equipment in the bed of my truck, as I always do on a Tuesday morning. Today when I got there I noticed my door had been forced open with a prybar. I hadn't been there since Friday ( I do estimates on Mondays). All 11 of my chainsaws, 2 backpack blowers, and an electric impact wrench totalling around 10k had been stolen from my shop over the weekend sometime. My shop is located in Deep Gap, NC. They were so kind as to leave all my climbing and rigging gear, as well as hand tools (nothing stolen you would actually have to work with to make money off of). The list of equipment is all Stihl brand unless otherwise noted, and is as follows:
MS 460 CHAINSAW. SERIAL # 172446205
BR 700 BLOWER. SERIAL# 511996361
MS 192 CHAINSAW. SERIAL# 296643879
BR600 BLOWER. SERIAL# 507502349
MS201T CHAINSAW. SERIAL# 182498221
MS362 CHAINSAW. SERIAL# 180914414
MS880 CHAINSAW. SERIAL# 182096460
MS440 CHAINSAW
MS261 CHAINSAW
395XP CHAINSAW (HUSQVARNA, 32" BAR, PARTIALLY CRUSHED MUFFLER)
MS200T CHAINSAW
MS362 CHAINSAW (STIHL "LIGHT" 20" BAR)
026 CHAINSAW

I am offering $1000 reward no questions asked for the return of all equipment, and $150 reward for any info given that results in return of equipment or arrest. Maybe that is easier for you (thief) than trying to sell all of this to people that don't know its value. There has been a police report filed and we have footage of vehicles coming in and out of the buildings. Please share this everywhere you can, and keep an eye peeled for a saw thats being sold too cheap, thats all I ask. There have apparently been a slew of break ins in this area. An area I have always considered to be safe and full of kind people. This is my livelihood that was taken from me, not just a hobby. We all work hard for our possessions and money. This has to stop. For my huge network of tree workers on social media: this equipment could be anywhere, please let me know if you find any suspicious or overly cheap postings in your area. I know this hits home for a lot of hard workers out there. Thank you.

*****UPDATE***** Last night I received a call from Watauga Deputy Will Watson that 10/11 of my saws had been found, and 1/2 of my blowers! I was absolutely ecstatic. They were found in Lenoir based on a lead I received because of all of the facebook activity and shares! Thank you all so much, the overwhelming amount of shares, prayers, and thoughts I received truly restored my faith in people. I cannot express my gratitude in everyone that shared and commented, the kind person that contacted me with the lead, everyone who offered saws for me to use in the meantime, Farmers Rentals for being unbelievably helpful, and the Watauga and Caldwell Sherriffs departments. Specifically Deputy Watson going above and beyond the call, staying late, and quite literally driving the extra mile to make this happen. Wow. I am beyond thankful. I have taken steps to assure this cannot happen again, AND THE RESPONSIBLE PARTIES ARE BEING CHARGED ACCORDINGLY. I am still missing the HUSQVARNA 395XP, BR600 BLOWER, AND SNAP ON 1/2" IMPACT WRENCH that I did not mention. Keep an eye out for those 3 things, probably around Lenoir, and contact me or Deputy Watson if found. I got so much more back than I ever could have hoped, and so much support from the entire community. Again, thank you all. ****END OF UPDATE****
