Be on the look out for... Rega!!!
« on: February 01, 2017, 08:54:43 PM »
The disadvantage of having a shop front with a display is that it is tempting for thieves. This morning I had that sinking feeling when I arrived and noticed the security door ajar and the locks broken...
If anyone gets offered these for a good price then they are stolen:
Rega Brio-R serial# 15044
Rega DAC-R serial# 11318
Rega Apollo-R serial# 10408



The past, the present and the future walk into a bar. It was tense.  :nutter:

Why they must always break stuff in the process is beyond me.  May the sacks of **** soon meet slow and painful deaths.

Twats, hopefully they get caught.
Are you waiting for loneliness to paralyse? Are you waiting for sister midnight to anaesthetise?

You are lucky your alibi checked out! When they took the CD player and the DAC and broke the turntable I immediately thought Rotten Johnny  :EGrin:  :EGrin:  :EGrin:

Just kidding...  :point:  :D

Twats, hopefully they get caught.

I hope so too. Luckily because it's new all the serial numbers are captured... Today I missioned to capture repair and used stock serial numbers...

Cables do make a difference or that P2 and Phono would have also left the building.  :flame:

No respect for others belongings. When they broke in to my house couple of years ago they couldn't get the tv off the wall so the broke a glass and scratched the whole screen.

Hope the catch those Mother truckers.

Sorry to hear about the loss Jacques. Break-ins in SA are just too easy for criminals to get away with. All the best with the claims and will keep a look out!

Nobody said Intelligence was a prerequisite for theft.
Hope the goods were still in good order.

A good beating in an alley is on the cards before the Po Po take over.

That's why I asked on the Po Po front.  A number of years ago there had been a bit of a fracas with some chaps trying to rob a local bar.  They had picked the wrong place (owners were black belt just about everything, a martial arts teacher who also ran bouncers had been in at the time as had three of the bouncers off duty but packing).  The perps had been restrained and were being guarded until the police turned up.  On arrival, they took one look at the perps and said they didn't seem to have got that bruised when being restrained, we'll be back in ten minutes to arrest them........
