The good guys get nailed and the bad guys get a free lunch...Sorry to hear about your friend.
The bad guys broke into my shop a month ago, kicked the door in, stole tools and two motorcycles. Two weeks later, the cops caught one of them in a stolen car. The cops then went to their house and found several other stolen cars, stolen guns, tools, other motorcycles and my motorcycles (one of which was on the dudes back yard deck.)
I got my bikes back, but not the tools. Apprently, the cops could not gain entry into the house where my tools were because the thief was just a room mate. The judge would not give them a search warrent cause the thief was not on title with the house.
Two days later, the thief was out of bail working his back yard on other cars. My friend is his next door neighbor. Apparently he caught them stealing stuff from him and he beat the %@&$ out of him. Three of his other neighbors have had break ins as well. In fact one of the neighbors had one of them at gun point and they broke away and ran.
It is sad to hear stories like your friends when the real criminals enjoy our freedoms and they continue their ways even after getting caught.
