Good news to hear! I used to live over on that side of the state (in an apartment overlooking the lake.... sighhhh...) and even though at the time, I was "inactive" in rocketry, I'd stop in a couple times a year and check out Dave's stuff. He runs a really cool store. I gotta come up with an excuse to go over to Chicago one of these weeks and stop in there.
Hopefully the cops don't have to hold on to the evidence very long - as soon as it's documented and inventoried, they shouldn't need it much longer.
PS - why delete the suspects' names??
Hang the MFers out to dry.
I would guess they were headed to AIRFest. Nothing like a big launch to sell lots of merchandise in a hurry to a bunch of total strangers with cash to spend.Originally posted by TheRadiator
Wonder why they took the inventory to Kansas to sell?
It'd only weaken the case against the perps, if somebody who reads this board gets chosen for the jury.Originally posted by Bill
Perhaps to not weaken the case against the perps?

Here's part of an email I got from Dave today:
After working with the police for a couple days, I
decided to investigate on my own. I found out the
suspects (I deleted the names)
were going to Kansas to try to sell everything. I
immediately started the 13-14 hour drive to beat them
there and contact the the local police. After a day or
so they had an undercover plan to help catch the
thieves. IT WORKED!! About half of the products were
seized. The other half was stored in Indiana.
Unfortunately, all of Red Arrow Hobbies stolen
inventory is now being held as evidence until the
trial is over.
At least he'll get the stuff back, just may be a while.
His web pages have been updated since then (9/5). He has AT F20-4 and -7 motors in stock for $23.95 for the two pack (but that's all for AT motors).Originally posted by rebar_rocketry
They had a very serious break-in about a week ago. A whole "butt-load" of rocketry stuff was stolen, a very large portion of their inventory.
