Car broken into - Bag stolen
« on: May 11, 2011, 06:48:13 AM »
When I got into my car this morning to go to work, I noticed something wrong with the driver's side door, and quickly found my debit card had been stolen, things had been moved around, and my bag and discs were gone.  It did not make for a good beginning to the day.  Please keep your eyes out for my discs.  They all have my name (Van Spratford) and phone number (816-665-1906) in them, and all the Innova discs have the disc's ratings written on the back. 

Thanks -

Van

P.S. To Kevin, who I owe the #39 bag tag, sorry, it is gone.

Bummer! Sorry to read about this Van. That really, really, really sucks! And this didn't even happen at Swope, just at your home?

Shane -

Thanks for that!  Yep, it took place in my driveway.  They did not take my GPS, which was sitting next to my wallet in the glove box (but took my debit card out of my wallet).  They did not get into my trunk where I have my backup discs (I should have at least one replacement for each of the ones stolen).  The hardest part will be the replacement of my bag and shoulder straps.  I will take donations next week at Swope League.   ;D

Ok, so my debit card, 2 golf towels, Ace Race key chain, and PDGA renew tag were returned this evening by a lady who lives down the block...she found them in her yard.

About an hour later, someone called me and told me he found a bunch of my discs...got 13 of 21 discs and my water bottle back from my bag.

I am still missing my bag with straps, #39 bag tag (which I owe to someone), my #110 bag tag (which I got from the same person I owe the #39), 2 minis, some notepads that I write my scores down on, and some odds and ends.  

Someone is looking out for me and helping me get some of my stuff back.

Damn Van, that really blows.   You are the 2nd person who I've heard from that's gotten their bag ganked.  I have an Innova Birdie you are more than welcome to.   I never use it.

Lee, thanks, but I do have a small bag that holds about 8 discs that I can use until I can upgrade again.  I appreciate the offer though.  It is nice to know we DG'ers stick together.

Jack, I agree it was a bunch of kids...they dropped my debit card just 2 houses down along with some of the stuff hanging on my bag...and the fact 13 discs were just stacked in some bushes 2 blocks away...well...yeah, kids!  They had no idea on what to with that stuff after they had stolen it.

Justin, I agree that you should hide some stuff in your car (and my wallet was hidden in my glove box), but you really can't clean out your car each day of all the personal stuff.  Sometimes, it is just not prudent.

I live in Raytown near the corner of 68th Street and Maple Ave.  It really is a good neighborhood...we have just begun to have a rash of car break-ins.  PD are on the tail of several suspects...so I hope it will end soon.

Just figured out that the 5 bag tags I had to sell at Swope League were in my bag as well, so they are gone.  I dont remember which ones they were, but I know they were in the mid 200's (maybe 240's??).
