Stolen cues

Hi! I joined this forum to see if I can find the pool cue case that was stolen out of our vehicle from my husband a week ago. It is a black 2x4 leather studded, flame embossed Harley Davidson hard case with an indianapolis state championship towel attatched to the case containing a Predator SPW cue with rosewood and green and black 4 point veneers that I bought him on our 1st christmas together and a Lucasi jump cue. I am just sick about this. :( I am offering $100 reward for the return of it, no questions asked. In the slight case it's not returned I'm interested in finding someone who has the same cue to rebuy. I know that it is a retired stick, I have scoured the internet looking for one. My husband loved that predator cue and I really want him to get it back. Please contact me if you are interested in selling or come across his cues.

Makes sense but

Like the idea, too. Since this is about stolen cues, what happens if you unknowingly purchase a stolen cue only to discover later one that it was stolen? Is it returned no questions asked? or is it bought back?..etc.

I would be afraid it may encourage someone to steal then offer back for $ for " unknowingly ) buying. Cash with no questions asked.

South West 308-10 *STOLEN 6/12/2013*


It's extremely frustrating to post this, but here to do my part for the owner and also in part for selfish reasons of my own. I'll explain below.

South West Cue PIN 308-10 was stolen from the owner's safe in the Columbus, Ohio area on 6/12/2013.

Barry Strickland is the current owner of this cue. Yes, incase you were wondering, he is related to Earl. He sold the SW cue 308-10 to me two weeks ago, but when it came time to ship - it wasn't in his safe. I have the police report, he's contacting Laurie, and has already refunded my money. Barry knows the suspect, but I'm not at liberty to say since he's denied stealing the cue in court. It's now under investigation.

If you come across this 308-10 being sold and shipped from Ohio, it's stolen property unless it's sold by Barry.

I've attached pictures.

If you have any leads or know of someone trying to move this cue, please contact:

Barry Strickland @ 614-395-6908

I am constantly looking on craigslist and eBay to see what is offered, as a lot of pawn shops eventually list when no one buys pawned cues.

I am really good at remembering cue designs and woods, can pick out a lot of various cue makers, and also can get a good sense of when something for sale was stolen by the way the item is posted. But it would also help if anyone posting a stolen cue report include the materials used, and characteristics of the cue.

This includes points, veneers, woods, and ring materials. Signature locations, butt markings, and number of shafts also helps.

Stolen - Predator BK 1 Cue Harahan Louisiana

Cue was returned by honest mistake of accidentally forgetting it and someone else picking it up and walking out with it!

Stolen Thursday night, unmarked SP. Ironically I took this photo minutes before it went missing.

Cue RECOVERED! The thief/s apparently sold it (or gave my cues) to someone who tried to pawn it at a pawn shop near my house (where I left a note!).

I had a pair of cues get stolen last evening (10/5 - 10/6) in Hillsboro Oregon out of my truck and was hoping people could look out for them for me! I unfortunately don't have any good pictures of either (just of me playing).

First is a Bob Renis cue (dark, pictured below!). It is distinctive due to its wood/manufacture/shape, but also because it is a ~10.5mm tip and is 54" long. I love this cue dearly and really want it back. It is unfortunately a one of a kind that I doubt I'll be able to get again. The cue is a dark reddish-brown "Diamond Wood" with brass rings and a light tan wood accent. I've emailed the guy who sold it to me initially, so hopefully he has better pictures for me.

Second is a Predator BK2 with Linen wrap. It isn't distinctive otherwise in any way, but if you see someone trying to hock one it might be mine!

WHY don't you just buy it back? Seems like it might be cheaper to do that. JMO!!!!
