Anyone missing gear?

Postby SuperM » Sat Jun 29, 2013 11:15 am

Hey guys and girls,

A mate of mine just gave me a call and said at the Cash Converters in Montagu Gardens are selling a variety of gear marked with the initials NT

Gear includes but there could be more;

Old DMM Harness
Petzl Harness
CAMP Harness
Petzl STOP
A few carabiners and about 15-20 quick draws
He saw a set of nuts there as well

SELLING FOR STUPID PRICES so these idiots obviously don't know what they have

If your gear has been stolen check out these guys

Hope this helps

Be safe in the hills

My stuff was stolen out of my car a couple of weeks ago - none of these items though. Its really scary (and sickening :pukel: ) how much gear is being stolen! What can we actually do about it if we see our stolen stuff in a shop like Cash Converters? We can't exactly just say "that stuff is mine"and take it... does anyone know the protocol in this situation?

Personally I would tell the store manager who would probably call you a liar and chase you away (but just in case, rather go to them before the police), then report them to the police for dealing in stolen goods. Post about it on Hello Peter and see if anything happens. Thereafter report it to the media.

The police will probably turn you away as the shop isn't liable unless they had reason to believe that the goods were stolen when they bought them.

Just make sure you can prove the gear is yours, otherwise the store can charge you with defamation.
