Have the guy do 5 - 10 hours as a rack boy in the place before he's allowed back on the tables. The time spent racking would depend on his attitude / remorse / shame factor. At least 1 hour should be done for the owner of the cue. Perhaps let him set the hour limit?


My Vorpal cue jabbed 'er wonky and the shot went snicker-snack. 'Twas brillig.

Arrested - no question. Letting him off the hook isn't doing anyone any favors - including the thief.

It would depend on his attitude and reasons. Maybe talk to him and see what his reason was and if that sort of thing is something he has done or will do again.

Everyone makes mistakes and who knows maybe he is a good person who made a bad mistake. I will never condone stealing but helping someone through a bad time can be a good thing.

Spot on. A police record would be a hard lesson, but letting him off sent him the wrong message.

Since he got the cue back , forget it and move on. My father in law was a lawyer and said nobody wins if you go to court. Not worth the hassle, having the mess on your mind for a 6 months to a year. Will surely wreck your game :-)
He'll steal again and get caught.

Not sure if the laws / police are the same every where but I had a friend have his cue stolen. The police caught them rather quickly cause they went to another pool room 20 miles away and were playing with their "new" cue. My friend didn't press charges cause the police told him if he did, they would have to keep his cue as evidence.

That being said, if you don't press charges I would have the thief come to the pool room and have him sit there for some public verbal shaming.

Slather him with peanut butter tben drop him off high in the hills to play with the bears...
He should at least be never to set foot on the properly/trespass him off the property.
If someone was caught stealing a cue from local poolroom, for their own safety they should be banned reguardless if they apologize or not..

Have him arrested or cut him a break?

I hope he steals your cue next time.

The guy doesn't want to spend hours of his time over a period of weeks or months dealing with lawyers and a judge over a cue that he ended up getting back unscathed. Easy for you to lecture him.

No way in hell I'd just "let it go". That's just the same as telling him to be more watchful for cameras next time.

Arrest him. He needs to learn about consequences. He's in his twenties. Where's he been, under his mommy's skirt?
