    He goes by the name Rick, and drives a 2007 Bronze Jeep Liberty with fog lights on the bumper and 4 KC style lights on the roof. He has a half sleeve tattoo on his right arm that says his airborne division from his time in the military. He is wanted for the theft of 37 firearms including rifles, pistols, and shotguns, valued at over $40,000. He also stole over $500 in change, if you see someone with this description cashing in a large quantity of change please don't hesitate to contact the Wallowa County Sheriffs office. If you have seen him or know of his whereabouts please contact the Wallowa County Sheriffs office @ (541) 426-3131. Any help is greatly appreciated, He also stole a small safe with very important documents including Social Security cards, Deeds, and Birth Certificates. These Items are very valuable to me and I need them returned and the perpetrator punished. Crime like this is unacceptable in our society!! Again, the authorities to contact are Wallowa County Sheriffs office @ (541) 426-3131. Thank you

    I did post it on craigslist, but they would only let me post it under one topic and one geographical location which is really stupid

    I tried to copy and paste this, and post it on CL in Spokane but the photos
    would not copy. But you should be able to change the title just a little and be fine.

    That is really lousy. Sorry for your loss.

    I am curious (from a strategies & tactics perspective) how this sociopath was able to get close enough to you to pull this off.

    I realize it may be a little embarrassing to admit you were fooled by him and to describe how - but it may also be instructive for the rest of us.

    I'm gussing from the photos that he was at one point trusted enough to be included in a casual social setting (they don't appear to be surveillance photos).

    I've been suckered by sociopaths myself - so I know what it feels like. They are more dangerous than the criminals who "look" and "act" like criminals - because they are adept at getting inside our usual defenses.

    If you're near the border, make sure to post the picture to craigslists in Boise and Spokane. At the least.

    Do they have a CrimeStoppers program down there like we have here? I know they offer rewards and advertising rewards usually entices even some relatives to turn people in.

    Hope they nail this guy to the wall :thumbup:

    This afternoon the SOB was caught in Louisiana still in possession of 21 rifles and 4 pistols. He didn't have all of the guns, but he still had the majority of them. He was wanted in two other states for felony warrants. The vehicle he was driving was also stolen. After two weeks of dealing with county sheriffs from across the country, as well as the ATF, he was apprehended. I will post more details as I receive them. I appreciate all of the support everyone has given. I am new to NWF website, and I am very grateful to everyone who view and replied to this thread. Thank You all.
