Sad day in America

A pastor friend of mine got home Thursday night to find that his BGE was gone from his deck. Someone stole it while he was away.
Had to be at least 2 low life's to carry a Large off a deck.

    That's a fear of mine too. We are the beach for a couple weeks, and I hope the large is still there when we get back! I can keep a close eye on the mini while here. I think anyone caught for stealing a BGE should get the death penalty ;)

    I pill mine into the cave when gone for an extended period of time.... Hate that it happened. Maybe the congregation could surprise him with a new one.

    Wouldn't his home owner's insurance cover it? Ours does.

    Geez, that stinks. I guess that is one argument for getting an XL BGE. There is no way it can be stolen with how much it weighs.

    Didn't any of his neighbors notice?

    He said his insurance would replace it but he's a little afraid of putting another one out there right now.

    I'm thinking of chaining my table to my deck posts. Wont stop a determined thief but it may slow them down.

    That just blows. Did the thieves know what they were stealing? Seems like it would not be something thieves would want - its big, heavy, kinda fragile, and which appeals to a select few (in terms of getting rid of it for cash). Senseless.

  • This sucks.  Sorry, guys. 

    When I bought my Large Egg, I asked the guy "got any good ways to keep this chained up somehow so it doesn't get stolen?"  He looked at me like I had told him his parents were aliens.  Said it was way to heavy, nobody would even try.  Now to hear this makes me paranoid again. 

    It's an obsession, but it's pleasin'

    I remember this thread with a picture of a mini at a tailgate:

    padlocked it to the tow hitch ... could do the same to a deck post.  Wouldn't stop a fully determined thug, but may deter a lazy one.

    For those of you with shotgun security, try rock salt.  It may not kill 'em, but it will hurt bad and perhaps the salt will bounce off the egg!

    Not good, not good at all. 
    Given the used prices and ease to "move" these things on Craigslist, I'm surprised we don't hear about more being stolen. Got to be just as easy to fence as a big screen TV and they are in demand.

    thankfully thieves are deterred from stealing my egg by my 2 dogs, but if I did not have them I'd be concerned.

    I was really paranoid when we got our first egg.  But I have cameras up all over, and ferocious attack cats positioned strategically.   Say hello to my little friend.... ;)

    You'd think by now they would just leave you a key and save having to repair the break-in damage...

    That's just sad.  Humanity never ceases to disappoint, does it?   We may need to do a Lo-Jack group buy.

    That sucks, hoping they get caught and your pastor gets his egg back. Lowlife dirty words.
