Now they must feel really bad for not keeping that security people at the door checking stuff as people get in and out. On another note, how does he get away with something like this and once again, no pictures, no video, and he even could walk out/downstairs and hop on a car? Wow, this is getting crazy around here. Reading these posts on this blog makes me think these thieves are also reading these reports, and finding out that nobody follows up and they don’t get caught (or they get caught but we don’t hear about it since there is no follow up) and they just go around robbing places.

Ok, firstly this was a day shy of a month ago. At this point, who cares? Secondly, shame on you for your bait and switch journalism. “Man steals drum kit from Guitar Center” I think, WHAOO how’d he do that?! I gotta read this!!

Come to find out from the rest of your “report” it was a module for an electric kit!?! Something the size of a small laptop?! Come on. What’s the point of even reporting. Useless, shameful and expired.


Oh, that explains it. I was thinking with all the construction and the store being upstairs to begin with, it’s hard enough getting in and out of that place as it is. How do you run out with an entire drum kit??? 😀
