Hey guys, my local store just reported on Facebook that the nearby shop was broken into last Friday, and they lost the Geo 3.5 they'd just received and advertised.  There's a decent chance it was paintball players involved in the theft as the crime occurred right in time with an expensive shipment having just come in.

 

Here's what was stolen:

Empire Axe silver body/blue highlights No SN 
Empire MIni GS Dark Blue /grey NO SN
Etek4 LT HDE Forrest SN# 11080-46486
Geo 3.1 Lime/Silver ( Kryptonice) SN# 13060-28153 
Geo 3.5 Black/Black (Midnight) SN# 14010-30730 
DYE DAM Black/Black SN# 30260000 or 0114310059 
BT TM15 Camon SE

 

I'm sure it's a "hail mary" pass to find them, but if one of these happens to turn up - especially that 3.1 or 3.5, can you pass the word back on to Paintball Central?

God damnit. Freaking people. I will definitely look out for them, and I will ask my friends to as well. Hope you find them.

Possibly, but it's also coincidental that they'd just used Facebook to advertise the Geo 3.5 at 11:30 the morning of the theft.  Not sure how many people saw the picture, but they have around 6000 likes for their Facebook page. There have been times where I think Rob Staudinger has run the shop himself, though I don't know if he was working that Friday.

kinda weird to think about it, But That theft of stolen paintball goods is a felony (>$1000). Its kinda weird that someone would risk the rest of their life for a chance to play with a high end marker, Or to sell for a few thousand $.

That sucks. A dude stole a mini setup with a whole bunch of tippman a5s. He took a few hopppers and left. They found him at his house with the stuff because the cameras caught him and the found his print from touching paintballs.
