Deployed troop’s antiques & collectibles stolen

mad face.jpgOh, man. I’m so mad. You would be too: Check out this article from the NBC Action News about a couple of “enterprising” fellows in Kansas who were involved in the “theft of antiques and household goods put in storage by military personnel who were deployed or transferred from Ft. Leavenworth.”

From 1999-2003, an employee of Century Van Lines in Leavenworth, Kansas, sorted out valuable
goods soldiers stored with CVL and placed them up for sale on eBay and at his “garage sale.”

Stolen goods including collectable lunch boxes, decorative platters and
oriental rugs were sold to antique shops and individuals in Kansas,
Missouri, Wisconsin and Ohio.
