Caught someone stealing today....

It was from my bag. Just curious what you guys would expect the owner of the field to do?

I would expect him to be banned right on the spot in front of everyone with a picture up of him on a wall of "Stealers".

The owner was there. I told them right away and even asked 30 minutes later why the guy was still there and allowed to play.

Does it matter? I watched the guy reach in my bag and put it in his pocket... IMO weather it was something that cost $.50 or something that cost $100.00 he's a thief.

I couldn't stop him just standing by my bad and eyeballing it. Then I look like a bad guy. He wasn't rummaging through my stuff. He reached in, grabbed it then walked away quickly. I stopped him immedately afterwards.

RULE 24.5: keep an eye on your stuff, coz the bad guys are- even if it's just a pod of paint

Now that we know where it was and how you feel it should have been handled..

How was it handled? Did you approach the owner calmly or did you come off like below? What did the owner say about the situation?

I really didn't come here to rant. If that were my point I would have come on here blasting the field and the owner. I was honestly just curios what other honest players think should happen to someone who is caught reaching into someones bag and taking something that doesnt belong to them.

I have no reason to lie about what I saw happen. The fact is the guy got caught and was trying to lie to get out of it. I watched him stand over my bag and eye ball it's contents before reaching in, taking the pod then walking away.

I had no intention of mentioning the field or the owner... Honestly. Ive already mentioned I understood the tough position she was in. She was very nice. She checked with me several times after the event and offered to let me keep my gear inside.

I think the field owner should have done three things:
1) Called the cops to press charges of theft.
2) Immediately perma-banned the offender, with a picture on the shop wall.
3) Asked his "friends" to leave the field due to their association with the offender.

I know that a couple of fields here in the Houston area would have called the cops and had the offender prosecuted as a thief.

i mean wasnt saying go grab the guy but at least walk over to your bag and zip it up - it should be zipped up anyway if you are playing in a place thats unfamiliar to you --

Whether it was a pod or a $1500 gun, the SOB should have had a nice trip to jail and banned from the field. I would have persued it further until the proper actions were takin.

agreed.

People don't change.. So he might lay low but who knows how much he has stolen and when he will do it again.

He is a piece of **** and something more than "I just let the owner know" should be done...

Thumbs down to you and the owner..

I'd break his f**ing legs and the owners face for not doing anything!

Yea and that's pretty stupid.
I wish he took your gun so maybe you would be a little more upset and proactive about a CAUGHT-REDHANDED-THIEF!
