    Sounds like someone was JUGGING you. New trend where they follow someone that they know just got $ and rob you.

    sriley531 Buckle up, this could get rough....

    Wow, that's terrible Kenny. I'm glad it they didn't get your car. Still sucks though...

    I don’t like to carry that kind of cash without a ‘friend’. Sorry that happened, but you still have your life and your Buick.

    Sorry Kenny! Glad that you were not hurt.

    Patrick is spot on. When I have to pick up anything of value or sell anything of value I always have friends and or personal protection with me.

    Sorry to hear. Jugging, not new, been going on for some time. An Attorney friend (& 72 Stage1 owner) picked up money for employee Bonuses a while back, stopped for lunch, only to find Wife's car window shattered & $$$$$ gone when he got back to car.
    I Hope they catch the Thieves, but I doubt You'll get anything from them.

    Smokey15 So old that I use AARP bolts.

    No doubt you were followed. I'll bet they were right there watching you selling stuff. I hope the scumbags get shot by the next someone they try that to or get run over by a train.

    Guns solve this problem where I live.....Should have spent $1000 on a good 9mm first then you would still be $1000 ahead of the game PLUS feeling safe ALL THE TIME! for thought!

    $350 for a used .38 probably would have done the job.

    That sucks to hear, Ken. I'm a gun carrier myself, but glad you going psycho on them about your car scared them off. Effin' cowards. Hopefully they don't come back now that they know where you live and your car is parked, be extra careful over the next few months with it.

    thanks for the input! red car is tucked away unknown to only 2 folks. Fers paid their telephone bill with my credit card-really smart. I wish I could meet all the great buick nuts I have talked with on this board. seriously- thanks for your support! kenny462

    If they knew about your car being hidden away I'd be willing to bet someone you KNOW tipped them off!!!!

    That will probably get their ignorant asses caught. Cops will trace the number to the scumbags.

    Yeah, that seems like a no brainer there. Get 'em Kenny!

    Very doubtful, the cops don't care or spend anytime on things like this, they have way too many sex cases, and there was no weapon involved and they have a huge workload......add to that their wives and kids hate them and their G. A. S (give a $#!T).level is next to empty.......

    Perhaps you can set up another "sale" involving the same players as the first one and lure those fine folks right into a snare. It seems likely they knew you were holding cash

    Sad but true, LEO's get little to no love. LEO priorities being what they are, most of us feel the same way.
