Gear Stolen out of my car

Did you forget you favourite boots at the crag? Or, did you find some quickdraw on the 4th bolt of some route?

Gear Stolen out of my car

Post by oofman » Wed Sep 07, 2011 4:50 pm

Hey Guys

So my car got broken into right infront of my house, and the only thing they took was my black k-way backpack with all my climbing gear in it. Not the laptop right below that, and not the camera right next to that. This happened about 2 weeks ago, and I cant see them doing anything with the gear besides trying to sell it.

I'll try and list all the Items and there makes as best I can remember, so if anyone knows anything pls let me know.

1 * black K-Way backpack
1 * yellow evolv shoes (size 10/11) front tips were busy tearing open on both sides (left worse than right)
1 * Blue Harness (cant remember make)
1 * Blue & white chalk bag (kinda like corduroy patter)
1 * Brown B-lay device
5 * Clips (1 for b-lay device, 2 green with green straps to anchor to bolts, 2 blue extra ones)
1 * Eveready headlight (blue strap)
2 * gym tags for b-laying (one in chalk bag and one tied to shoe)

And lastly
1/2 a pack of sour jelly babies left over from the last trip.

Don't think I will ever see it again, just thought I would try.

Thanks allot for reading.

That really leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. :puker:

Still, it sounds like an inside job?

You don't say where / what part of the country you are in?
Be a good idea to go check 2nd hand stores in the area.

Good luck!

I have learnt not to leave anything in my car. They broke in to steal a bag of rubbish lying on my backseat. How nice of them to clean up after me :roll:

Hi Theo

Thats terrible news, sorry to hear.

I have to ask. Had you stopped at a mates place or were you out for dinner or somewhere that prevented you from taking your rack and computer inside with you ?
You didn't leave it in your car overnight did you ?
