Car Broken into

Post by Chip » Mon Jul 11, 2016 7:39 am

Missing Harness Woody Valley, with 3040 and my icom radio, parachute of course too.

Also stolen two of my best DLG's

If anyone sees anything around Sylmar, get some info so we can get these suckers.

Looks like my Arizona trip/comp just got cancelled :(

That sucks scat. Where did this sad event take place? :evil:
I hope your auto insurance carrier decides to cover some of the loss. :(
Will keep an eye on craigslist for your stuff. :idea:

Can we have Jay or Russ enforce our rules? I've returned gliders in the middle of the night to find an encampment of street people set up in our biz.

Set a timer to stop selling sodas after dusk.

Great suggestions OP! Chip, how can we help you get back in the air before the comp? I'll gladly donate $100 if someone will take up a collection (I am not around to do a collection myself). Rob, how 'bout the club pitching in the $ on a donation and/or loaner basis? Chip has done many times that for the club!

Oh, and sounds like we need a couple cameras on the parking area of the LZ, even if these are fake for the time being, to deter theft and, once working, to catch the basturd(s)!

Does the Club have insurance? Chip, your homeowner's and/or auto insurance may also cover the loss. Let us know what you find out from all three!

Is their a national stolen glider/accessory registry? When you buy used equipment at guitarcenter(years ago) they make you wait 24 hours before you pick it up so they can run the serial numbers.
here is a Woody Valley Tenax 4 harness on ebay, do you have the specs and measurements sheet?

after the 1993 Old Topanga fire I learned materialistic items can be replaced with "Better" materialistic items. That harness is the exception.
I'm sorry to hear those were stolen I hope you get them back.

Just to be clear, this happened in Sylmar, but NOT at the flight park.

I like the idea of turning off the outlets with the exception of the socket that Russ is plugged into. It's likely easy enough to do.

Looks like home owners insurance will cover the items plus the cost of replacements. They said first check will likely be cost minus depreciation, then if and when I replace the items, I can submit another claim for the replacement cost difference.

The TWO broken windows in the Jeep will be at my expense seeing how the replacements cost less than the deductible ($500).

The full tally is over $7200

Thanks everyone for your well wishes. If you see these for sale, let the cops know.
