sorry to hear about your misfortune, I hope they catch the all of the culprits who had harm you. I hope you have a camera image that is installed in your premise. The only thing that I can tell you is that whenever a person enters in your store and sells you an alarm or a monitoring services and if you feel you don't have a need of it. It maybe the persons accomplice's that may have done the actual robbery on your place. It happen to a friend of mine in San Diego, CA 2 years ago. These are the guys that are I believe who prey on people with small business posing to sell you something and when you refuse they break in the next day or two. They watches every move you do until your guards are well down. I hope this has not happen to you the day before. Patoygolf

Swishman, hope you get your stuff back!!!

Patogolf, I have been in the alarm industry for more than 20 years and I have never heard of a licensed, reputable company pulling a scam like that. The people who victimized your buddy in SD may have claimed to represent an alarm company, but they were most likely just using that as an excuse to case the premise, and had no connection to any company.

Dang Brian, this sucks. After finally blowing the dust off my blade400 the other day I found out your place was closed. I Google you to see if maybe you moved and found this. Hope you're doing well. Sorry to hear about that.
