Around 40 ex-rental Automags stolen near Seattle, WA

I don't really expect anything to be recovered, but I just wanted to put this out there. My brother's storage unit in the Seattle area was broken into and several boxes of misc. paintball equipment were stolen. I do not think he knows exactly how many markers were stolen of various types, but most notably around 40 Automags were stolen. These were mostly kind of rough shape, but some of them were perhaps "good". Some had splash smart parts barrels and accessories.

Some boxes of high end bicycle components and a fairly extensive set of bicycle tools were stolen as well.

As I said, I don't expect most of this stuff will be recovered and I do believe he has insurance, but I'd like to see someone go to jail for this if possible. We are supposed to be a civil society after all.

Good luck with that. Someone who already had a record of forgery, drug charges and b&e broke into my house and stole money, other valuables and a Glock 23. I caught them on my indoor security camera in the act. The police caught them and they were let out with no bail pending trial. They skipped the court date and a warrant was issued. Months later I saw them at Walmart so I called the cops who came and picked them up. The following Monday they had their court date, plead guilty and they were given a suspended sentence. WTF? I'm supposed to get some restitution but they don't enforce it and I haven't seen a dime.

Yeah... I realize that property crimes are virtually non-existent on anyone's priority list in law enforcement. So, maybe it will simply be good to have this out there just to discourage somebody from giving these people any drug money for some beat up automags in WA. The bicycle parts and tools are actually the more valuable items stolen I think, but a lot of 40 well worn Automags seems more distinctive and might actually turn up.

Long story short: **** thieves.

I'll keep a eye out since I'm in the general area, I don't seem to see alot of mags for sell locally especially on places like Craiglist or OfferUp so they might stand out if they go up for sell

Lol, that's my brother selling the remainder of the stuff that wasn't stolen. He is in the process of a long distance move so clearing out all his stuff that was in storage. Thanks for looking out guys.
