I was at the P D today, seeing how I would do as far as stamina since I had pneumonia diagnosed last Sunday. (one nice aspect of being a reserve officer, I set my own hours). So I get a call from a citizen telling me he has found his air compressor in one of the local pawn shops. I start looking into the case. Back in June he reports a blue air compressor stolen. No brand, no model, no serial number, no psi, no nothing. Now the facts seem to indicate he MAY be right. But the courts do not accept it MAY be his. I have encouraged him to locate any documentation that will assist him in proper indentification regarding his property. But it is so frustrating to have someone get upset because they perceive I will not take action because they KNOW the item is theirs. Knowing is not proving. Record your serial numbers and/or have complete description and engrave your drivers license on this items without serial numbers. Your local pawn shop detective will thank you.
