      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

stolen? Possible stolen gear being sold on craigslist

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking that perhaps this could become a sticky thread in this forum.

 

If you are searching craigslist or ebay (local PNW listings) and see someone trying to sell climbing/outdoor gear that seems suspicious to you, post it here with a short description and maybe the owner will recognize their stuff and be able to contact/maim/prosecute the thief and recover their gear.

There's no way of knowing where he got the stuff.

 

Easy to assume it's stolen.

 

I think we're all angry and paranoid about meth-heads ripping off stuff, but not every person selling gear they're unfamiliar with is a thief.

 

Having said that, "ice shoes???" It sure seems suspicious.

 

Someone should send Big Lou down there to S Seattle....

Could you explain the correlation between S Seattle and why it's definitely stolen gear?

Maps? That's a strange one. That's the most suspicious part to me.

Remember that scene in Big Lebowski when The Dude asks the cop in the car impound lot if the detectives were going to dust for prints?

Great idea for a sticky!

------------------------

I work in far south Seattle (skyway, rainier valley, and the like) it is quite a different world than the north neighborhoods.

It could be stolen but a lot of people sell this type of gear for friends not having any idea what it is.

Have the cops investigate what? That someone is selling stuff on craigslist? The police need a reason to investigate, i.e. someone stating that it is their stolen gear being sold.
