Over this last weekend my shop in Houston, Texas, was broken into and many things were taken. Not very nice for an 82 year old that is trying to enjoy his “Golden Years”.

Any help in recovering the products and tools taken would certainly be appreciated. Below is a partial list of things taken. They amount to approximately $50,000. (Grand Larceny)

Six, Four Point Cues with two shafts each (some wrapped, some not) and none of the shafts were finished out. All signed by Richard Black and dated 2018.

Three cues by Scott Gilmore. Three different designs and all signed by Scott. Definitely “one-of-a-kind” works. All completely finished.

From the shop:

An 80 gallon Air Compressor

A small vacuum pump

A Red roll-around tool chest and filled with hand tools

A roll-around thickness sander

A Red Milwaukee radio

A heavy Grizzley 6” sander

A buffing double wheel on stand

Two miniature table saws

A 20 ton hydraulic jack

A Dumore Tom Thumb tool post grinder

A small propane torch set

Four spray guns for finishing

Quite a few other things including chemicals

I detest thieves and wish our criminal justice system was not so "touchy feely" in dealing with them. My little hick town in Alaska and the nearby places seems to be plagued by them. I think the problem is every where.

Hoping Mr. Black gets his stuff back and they serve hard time on a chain gang. I also hope they become victims of other thieves some day, so they know how it feels. Flog them!

That had to be done by more than one guy. Surely some of those things will be seen at some point. Watch out for Craig's List and Ebay, and that sort of thing.

This is terrible... IDK if Richard has any pics of the cues or
equipment.. POS's robbing a craftsman of his tools and
likelihood.. realy shitty. Seems like it's someone who knows
RB's set up... hope they catch the bastard(s).

PS, I agree it's gotta be more than one guy... a rollaway full
of tools, floor jack, etc. is heavy stuff.

Doesn't RB live out by some lake? Take some balls to break-in and steal all that. I take he wasn't home hopefully? Any neighbors nearby at all? Hope they catch the maggot(s).

This smells bad. Doesn't sound random to me. Someone knew that stuff was there imo.
