TimberKing Rocks!
« on: June 11, 2018, 08:45:29 PM »
Matt at TimberKing recovered my  sawmill that was stolen 3 years ago.  He politely inquired on an online blade order that looked a little fishy.    The customer provided the serial number, the billing, and shipping address.  Matt shipped out the blades, then called me.  He sent me the info, I contacted an investigator at the sheriff's office and, wha-la, they recovered my mill.  I checked it out; it was well cared for; I paid the recovery costs to get it back.

Because of the time elapsed, they Sheriff cannot prosecute.  They did track it back to a local  meth-head who deals in stolen property, then back to a fella on the reservation that makes his living ripping off others.  I politely asked the investigator for the name and address of the reservation fella; for some reason he would not part with the info. Probably a good thing!

Anyway, thanks TimberKing!   My mill is back, set up, and ready to cut timbers for my next framing class.

   Congratulations and well done to TK. 

   I am surprised the law can't prosecute at this stage. Sounds like an awful short statute of limitations for what has to be a felony/grand theft larceny. I can understand the police not wanting to give out the man's info (I bet they would really love to provide it) to help keep you out of trouble.

 8) Thats great that you were able to recover a well cared for mill. Matt did you good to take a personal interest and go the extra mile for you. He has always been there for me when I need something too.

Its unfortunate that the areas local sheriff office isnt willing to follow through and take action. :( Sounds to me like the statute of limitations is on the side of the criminal there, or more likely he just doesnt want to deal with it. Not sure I would be as willing to let bygones be bygones as you seem to be. Anyway Im happy for you and your mill to be reunited.

If I may ask, what theft precautions if any were in place when it was stolen ??? ??? ??? and what theft precautions are you going to take now ??? ??? ????

Again congratulations on recovering it.
