Tank stolen from New Mexico

Was playing at Hinkle Family Fun Center paintball because I was on vacation for my birthday. Everyone there was nice and friendly until a few punk emo kids kept asking people for stuff like paint or to borrow guns. I was done for the day and got ready to pack all my stuff up. I turned around to put my other pants on and turned back around and my tank was stolen. Conveniently those kids left when I was turned around. I contacted the manager, police and got everyone there involved. I'm really trying to get people in that area on the lookout. It is a 68/45 empire tank carbon fiber, has two zip ties on them. One on the gauge and the other on a burst disk. There is some sticker residue on the reg as well. There was a dye Rhino grey cover missing a few of the ornaments or whatever on the cover. If they removed the cover, there is an electrical tape butt cover in the back. One of my grandfathers name patch from the army was glued on the cover with the name "Glaser" on it. We were unable to get a good view of my table at the pits on camera so there was a huge blind spot. Poor management on their part but like they said they are not responsible. These kids are probably going to try and sell it for quick cash so if anyone sees it on Craigslist or at a pawn shop or even on the field I would be very pleased if they would contact me at 479-3O4-8558. Thanks

That really sucks man, sorry to hear it happened to you. I highly doubt you'll see them or the tank again. Thankfully it was _just_ a tank they took. Sadly you really can't leave any of your gear out of your sight even for a second. We always have someone stay back with our stuff when we are playing or we have it out of sight.

I think this may be a small price to pay to be extra vigilant in the future.

Poor management? Which part of them shutting down all the games and physically looking for YOUR stuff was poor management? It's not there responsibility to look after your gear, so I wouldn't be saying that there is bad management. I was there sunday as well and they were still asking and looking for your tank, give them some credit.

I think he was just referring to a huge blindspot, a flaw in they're cameras fov, in an area where items can easily be stolen

Having looked at the footage as well the camera only misses maybe three feet of the staging area. Granted that is directly below the camera, this is why I stage at the tables a few feet past the wall.

Anyways, we're still looking and asking for your gear. I'll notify you ASAP if anything comes up.

Thank you. I'm just saying they should get more cameras. My field that I work out has at least 6. I'm just saying though.

I know it was my fault for getting it stolen but just think that the complex should pay for more cameras. I'm not blaming the paintball part but the company itself for not very good protection with everyone's hard earned stuff.

It's not the field's job to protect your stuff.
Having any cameras at all is a bonus imho.

I'm sure they have a sign somewhere that says that YOU and you alone are responsible for your stuff.

They might have but I don't really know. I'm still on the hunt for it on CL so hopefully it'll turn up. Thanks to everyone who is helping out.
