    Tom, we have a "lost and stolen" section on the UMGF. If you're not a member there, hit me with a PM and I can get the info posted for you.

    That sucks. Hopefully you get your items back.

    Try pawn shops in your area - usually the people that steal try to convert the items into cash quickly (your county and nearby counties.)

    Yes! 20 years ago, my Florida sister-in-law took photos of her stolen jewelry to every pawn shop and police depatment in the county. She got 'em back.

    That truly sucks. Check Ebay, the police call it America's Fence.

    Really sorry to hear about that, hang in there.

    I'll echo what others have said about getting your instruments back.

    Regarding your briefcase and laptop, I've heard of them just getting dumped somewhere after getting pilfered. If you're lucky someone will find and turn them in.

    There are some real jerks out there, to put it kindly. You must've felt sucker punched. Hope you will get everything back unharmed.
