As our economy sinks deeper and deeper into depression, more property is stolen to support the thieves that plague our world.
Much of this stolen is being sold on the internet to unsuspecting people who look for bargains on these sites.
Many of these stolen items come from construction site, wholesale warehouses, or even the delivery trucks carrying them.
It's easy to steal items in the city, and bring them to rural areas and smaller communities with the intent of selling them to unsuspecting citizens who look to save a dollar or two.
None of us want to aid criminals, just like none of us want to promote crime of any kind in this area.
A simple solution is ask to see proof of purchase when buying goods on the internet. Especially from strangers who claim to be new to the area. Or people who claim to have family in the area and selling these items is a way of helping family members who are suffering financially.
It takes community awareness to maintain the lifestyle we want, and preserve the community's integrity.
Keeping our eyes open can mean the difference between a safe environment and letting thieves and drug dealers ruin what we have worked so hard to create.

I believe I may have ended up with some stolen items we purchased on craigslist. After we paid the woman for the air conditioner she said she was going back to K.C. but would return soon. The A/C ran for a month and quit. Since we had no receipt we couldn't get factory warranty support. So we are out $150.00 and the woman isn't reachable. So be careful, the world is full of scammers!
