Stolen gear from 4Corners Riversports

Hello buzzards,

We're asking for your help in keeping an eye out for some gear that was stolen from our store last night. We had a break in and the thieves made off with a decent assortment of gear from the shop. If you happen to stumble across gear on Craigslist, Ebay or the like, that is priced ridiculously low or simply seems shady, we would love to know about it. Below is a list of some of the things that were taken:

Kokatat Rogue Drytop
NRS Flux Drytops
Snap Dragon Sprayskirts
A pair of Cataract Oars
Coyote Toilet system
Stohlquist Neptune Pants
NRS Radiant Wetsuits
Kokatat Booties
NRS, CRKT, Gerber, Stohlquist & McNett Knives

If you happen to see any of the above gear being sold in a suspicious way, please let us know. Any info that helps us find the culprits will be happily rewarded. Thanks for your help!

So Lame. Hope they get caught, and you get your gear back.

Finger removal would cure almost all thievery.

Sorry to hear it, guys. You have a great shop. If they get caught, I hope for a good old-fashioned hanging.

If they're planning on using that gear, their river karma will get them big time!

Love the thought of river karma getting someone back for stealing a groover. could be a shit storm. wait, now do I have bad karma if I wish bad groover karma on someone else? this is so confusing.

In the climbing community, if you steal gear, you will die using that gear. Does that same situation to apply to bottom-feeders who steal river gear?

On one river trip some time ago, secluded part of the run as well, we ran across a dry bag snagged in the bushes with various items in it, including a unopened fifth of good whiskey. We opened it up, talked about our "good" luck and decided to drink the whiskey that night in camp unless we ran into the owner. Did not see any other rafters the rest of the day or passing by our camp.

Rest of the day was a series of "bad" things, just pain in the butt things. Setting around the campfire, we discussed the whiskey, entire dry bag contents and events of the day. Decided we should give the booty back to the river.

Next day we put the entire dry bag setup loose in the middle of the river. Things started happening for the best soon as the bag floated away.

Since then, I might retrieve river booty but either leave it at the take out, give it to Rangers, or hang it on the river bank in plain sight.

True story and I believe in River Karma.

I hope the thieves at 4 Corners and Upper Salt River get exactly what they deserve. Bad luck, poison ivy rash on their butts and time in jail.

Did they recover this gear when they caught the Bodo thief this week in NM?
