Dear PoP – Recovering Stolen Goods

by Prince Of Petworth June 1, 2010 at 1:30 pm 25 Comments

“Dear PoP,

I live on newton between 14th and 16th, and had my car window bashed in last night (and laptop stolen) right outside my house. One of my roommates had the same thing happen a couple months back. any resources for dealing with this kind of thing?

I filed a police report, but any other tricks you know of to try to get it back? maybe pawn shops in the area or something?”

I’m sorry to hear about this. I can imagine how frustrating this must be. I hope folks follow my PSA and never ever leave valuables in their cars.

But to the original question – has anyone ever been able to track down stolen goods? Perhaps visiting pawn shops or craigslist? Any suggestions?
