Another theft of 16mm locos.

Post by Enginehouse » Sun Dec 21, 2014 8:38 pm

Copied verbatim from G- Scale,Central a few moments ago. Hopefully Phil will expand on the locality and local police contact number so that members of the various groups in that particular area can keep a look out locally.

QUOTE:-
This message was posted on the 16mm Association e-group by Phil Carey. "My elderly friend, a fellow member of the Association, has recently suffered a burglary in which all his 16mm locos were stolen (along with family silver plate, jewelery, etc.) but none of the radio transmitters.In the unlikely event that these are offered for sale I have listed the locos below:Roundhouse Gas-fired and radio controlled :1. Vale of Rheidol in unlined green - fairly new2. 'Taliesin' - lined Red3. Lady Anne "Blakebrook" - lined GreenBattery locos radio-controlled :4.

Is this one? Lady Anne - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Roundhouse-Li ... 2c94d852b3

The seller also had a Taliesin and a red Essel diesel earlier today but don't appear to be listed anymore

Having had a further look i am certain all of those locos are stolen, its suspicious that they are very similar to the ones stolen and not much information is provided about them, is there any way of stopping the sale?

There has to be somewhere - though I can't find it. Looking at the sellers other items he seems to deal in collectables and has a lot of feedback so would be unlikely he stole them - could have been sold to him though :?

Looks like the engines alright.
Has anyone got the contact details for the owner/local Plod?
I hope they end up back where they belong.[/b]

This is a lead worth following and the police should be informed so that investigations can take place.
It may be perfectly innocent, but if my stock was stolen and reported in this way I would be grateful for the assistance of the Forum members.
The best things in life are free.... so why am I doing this?

If you believe these are the stolen items then report it to ebay a.s.a.p....

On the item listing, click on "Report Item". When the new screen opens select "Listing practices" in the first box, "Stolen property" in the second box and the same in the third.

They are pretty quick about dealing with this kind of stuff.

You can't report stolen items unless you can prove you are a law enforcement official.
I have emailed ebay about these, but I hope some one can inform the owner so the wheels can be set in motion with the police.

I've sent the G Scale Society Publicity Officer a link to this topic as I assume he will be able to get the chap informed and help him do what is possible.
I'm assuming the link works of course.
It is of course possible that he is a member of this forum anyway but fingers crossed.
