I am wondering if police would catch the guy if Justin didn't literally hand him over to them ready to pick up. Probably very slim.

Hats off to Justin.

It makes me wonder if there are ties between the main @sshat and the Russian or Armenian mob. Unfortunately, organized crime from the former Soviet Union is *very* active throughout Southern California. I also doubt someone could operate that big an operation in high-end electronics *without* being involved (one way or another) with one of the criminal gangs in SoCal.

Justin, way to go!! I know you are not the type that seeks kudos for the things you do but man KUDOS to you for going the big time extra mile for a fellow vendor. 

 

Todd man it is great to see you get your stuff back, people don't realize just how hard the vendors we have here work and for many on relatively small margins. A few hits like this really hurt, glad to see the good guys win.

Justin should be charging the perp for the aluminum blanks biggrin.gif

post #339 of 430

Glad they caught these guys although they'll probably plead down to a lesser charge and be out in a year or 2 since it wasn't a violent crime. Chances are whenever they do get out, they'll go right back to their old ways.

 

So when do the amps go on sale as "used"? wink_face.gif

Its great to know that Todd recovered his amps.

 

As for the perps, I hope they like listening to 'Jailhouse Rock' for a long time.

Wow, what a story! Great job by Justin, what an outstanding citizen. Very happy for Todd and the head-fi community.

So, how lame is this guy to not have a clue that someone was on to him after he received two aluminum blocks? Then threaten Justin 'cuz he got scammed?

I guess it speaks to the arrogance of criminals these days. I have heard that most criminals feel vastly superior to not only their victims, but the public in general.

I guess this time his arrogance bit him in the patootie.

 

Anyway, great job Justin. I can only imagine the satisfaction you felt after you heard that the baddies had been nabbed.

 

Kudos to the Torrance PD as well. They must have enjoyed that one immensely.

i just cant believe he went through with it after I referenced needing proof of identity due to "recent high-end audio fraud in southern california".  it's possible he never read that particular email as he was running about 40 scams at a time with different identities & email addresses for each one.  most of the thefts were not audio related and you can even find a pic of his car on the website www.supercars.net
