I Smell BS in this story.... I would say sounds like a dope deal gone bad.... How many time have you heard of meeting up with some one to rent a house at a Hotel... And then get jumped by 3 people you know and can identify ...

Sounds more like went for a dope deal and got ripped off, the rippers figured the rippy would never call the cops and admit to going to buy dope... Never thinking he would call and make up a rip off story to hide the deal gone bad....

i pretty much agree with you. why would you go meet someone at a motel, instead of just meeting at the place that is for rent? makes no sense

That's why I called it a Dope Deal Gone Bad... If there had been dope it would have a just been a dope deal.... But you are right, about 1 out of four criminal acts are not about drugs.... So not everything is about dope, just most bad crap that is Killing and Destroying our populations in these mountains...

And to meet with three people that You Know, can identify, at a Hotel to talk about renting a house... Then to get jumped and robbed by those three people that know you know who they are.... Yep I am sure the cops don't think that was the real deal... One of the 3 will spill the truth sooner or later....

I cannot believe something like this would happen at Mountain View Lodge! It is such a nice place with a good reputation. I am shocked.

First, to meet three people at a place other than the residence which is to be rented or leased, sounds wrong, and secondly to tell them you will have a thousand dollars in cash on you is more than wrong, it is down right stupid !!! Never meet anyone you don't know without having a friend with you or two!!! My best two friends Smith and Wesson!!!

How smart do you have to be these days to be a cop?

Step 1) Call his contact he was suppose to meet at the lodge.

Step 2) Everyone goes free because his story was BS.

Step 3) Go eat donuts.
