I love intelligent criminals. I mean, if you have to get robbed, it might as well be a good, professional job.

 yet every gun was left behind in the store.

At least they're well-equipped to hunt the thieves down.

It's hard to stop a determined theif. Most preventitive measures are designed to stop crimes of opportunity. If they come prepared to disable your security system and cut through the walls of your safe, they are going to get your stuff. This guy did everything a reasonable store owner should. Hopefully he has insurance and records of his inventory.

This, my office was broken into once, they pried open the door, cut the phone lines and stole 4 old laptops and some useless outdated networking equipment.  They planned so they had plenty of time inside and then they didn't break into the locked cabinet holding all the new laptops.

"With the firearms, obviously, there is serial numbers, (and) there's a huge paper trail."

Looks like they even managed to steal the correct verb "are" - that's what I call a professional job.

Does anybody besides me have the words "inside job" running through their mind?

It sounds like the heist was rather planned out.  Like maybe the crooks had a shopping list, a map of the joint, security codes, and exact time for the shift change.  Or a key to the back door.

"The owners said they weren't open on Sunday because pawn shops in Kentucky aren't allowed to be open on Sunday..."

This reads like the author is 4 years old...

I call bullshiat - no way there is $100,000 total in SE KY, much less just in jewelry.

I would everything that exists and has ever existed is a little bit advanced for Kentucky.

Sounds to me like some out-of-town pros had a tip-off from someone working there. You can't just take for granted that cutting lines to a security system will make it stop working - only the older ones are like that. Or take for granted that going through all this effort at a pawn shop is going to pay off. And common criminals would have taken the guns when given the opportunity, even if they knew it was a bad idea.

Chances are these guys will hit someone again. This looks to me like a practice run for something bigger, just to build confidence. Even with just a few people, the take isn't big enough when it's split to make something like this worthwhile.

/wow, get some energy drink in me and I turn all private eye and stuff!

So, someone with shoes and a getaway driver who wasn't completely spun on meth?

4 year old authors are a little bit advanced for Southeast Kentucky.

I think you're confusing eastern Kentucky with Oklahoma.  What you're most likely to find in eastern Kentucky are pill heads that are stealing mamaw's meds.

Regardless of stereotypes, all rednecks and hillbillies are not all "dumb hicks". Many can be quite innovative and resourceful when needed.
 
2013-06-04 04:18:38 PM
So this means that if more government money is poured into education we will eventually end up with more intelligent burglaries?

Thumbs seem a little bit advanced for Southeast Kentucky.
