Be on the lookout a 1978 Corvette Stingray was stolen right out of one of my reo's! There one day gone the next! Not being a motorhead my wife was the one who told me that someone just stole a car worth 20k maybe more as this model is a "classic".
I or course call the State Police and reported the theft. The police didnt know what to do because the car did not belong to me or my client. I was advised that under the current law, no crime had occurred, but because of the value they would take the report and would investigate the matter.
The funniest part of the whole thing was the officers disbelieft that I walked into a home saw the car, took photos of the car, reported it to my client, but never ever attempted to find out the owner. He was just shocked that I didn't care who's car it was.
I explained to him that this year i have come across 3 cars, 1 boat, 1 piano, two brand new pool tables, and 1 brand new hot tub. All we abandoned. Not to mention that on a daily basis I rekey some home that is full of personal belongings which end up in the dumpster. I have become rather immune to caring about why someone doesn't take their property.
To date this is the highest dollar value item that has been stolen. Can anyone beat this, I would be interested to know.
