lost/stolen auger

10 posts in this topic

my new jiffy model 30 fell off my sled as i pulled it out onto long lake north of saint francis this evening. I saw the only truck leave the lake a mid to late 90's gold s-10 pickup with a topper before i relized it had fallen off i was maybe 300 yards from the access when i noticed it was gone. I have filed a police report but won't press charges if it is returned. PM me if you have any info.

Don't get me wrong, I really hope you get it back, but how can you file a police report for something that was lost? I don't think any charges would stand up in any court against this guy as he could claim he found something on public property and the court could deem it as abandoned property.

Nothing to press charges on if you drop it, but man that is a kick in the teeth I understand your dissappointment.

Filing a police report is a good idea. If an honest individual finds it and wants to try and return it they may very well contact the police department to see if anyone reported a lost property report.

you may very well be right but in stating that it is abandoned couldn't i drive up and steal an empty wheel house and drive away with it and say it was abandoned on public property?, seeing the guy drive off with it, in my eye's, would be stealing he could have just as easily turned around and made an atempt to find out if the guy a couple hundred yards away had accidently dropped it. bottom line the auger probably is never going to turn up. im out 1 new auger and my season is over.

i stated that the auger fell off my sled in the police report at any rate my hope was that the person would get pulled over or see a posting on this forum and i could recover my property as i can't afford to replace it

Dont know the laws in MN ,but in SD you have to make a reasonable attempt to find the propertys owner or you can be charged. Dont remember the exact charge, but had this happen with a customers gift cards he lost in the parking lot.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
