If getting caught isn't enough, pressing charges will just put a bigger chip on his shoulder.

even if a production cue at 4 to 5 hundred for a lot of people is a lot of money, being on the losing end of that can sting. Find out what the D.A has to say they are going to have as much say in how much they want to spend punishing the perp as the person pressing charges, leave it them then let it go.

The one time someone grabbed one of my cues, very expensive, I hit the parking lot and took it from him just as he was putting it in his trunk.
I knew him and his brother, the kid was 17 so I chose to let it go.
An older kid like this guy might br a different story, but I tend to be more forgiving that most people.
I got yhe cue back, let him know I wasn't happy, but just let it go.
The environment he has grown up in isn't very good, and I think he learned an embarrassing lesson.

Main thing is you got it back KC. Stealing someones cue is real low and cheesy. Could have been an heirloom, passed down from parent or friend that passed or a custom you waited 10 years to get.

I like the idea of posting up his name and pic if possible with CUE THIEF across it in pool room(s) in area.

I never leave my Cues unattended - PERIOD

Post the entire video.
That's been done a few times in the past and quite effective for trashing a thief

I don't know the value of the cue or how old the thief is. I do know this after about 30 years of dealing with crooks, thieves, etc that was not the first time he stole some thing.


Letting some one off the hook is not always good for them. Learning to be accountable, honest, hard working and responsible is always good for them.

I agree. The bad thing about getting caught is you can say. You wash my car right now or I call the cops or something of that nature. He'll get a quick education in how vulnerable a thief is.

My cues are all custom. Take one of my Scruggs and I'll use the butt of my jump break like a golf club between your legs. I'm sorry if you got injured during the commission of a crime. Stealing has consequences.

Parents and family are the ones that teach you that

The police wont give him that impression, only thay jail sucks but that too isn't enough for so many
Members of my family regularly run a foul of the law and seem to love going to jail

Not me, never spent more than 3 days in for traffic stuff and thats all i need to make me want to live clean amd free

Cause inside, its neither of those lol

Let it go. The thief wants you to let it go. The police want you to let it go. The courts, judges and lawyers want you to let it go (they won’t make much money out of a stolen pool cue case). You got your cue back.

-Kat,
Just a point of clarification; the stolen cue was not mine; it was a friend who regularly plays in our senior day league.

@pt109; yes, it was one of the Huebler's with the nylon-inserted shaft so a hitman may well have been in order.

Cue value is approx $500.

An interesting variety of responses from you guys on what to do with the offender.

best,
brian kc

this guy has a serious character flaw.
Arrested and booked, so the police have his fingerprints and he learns a lesson.

After that you can ask that the charges be dropped (if you want to)
