We tracked it down! Just call us Super Sleuths. We knew who took it, we knew they wouldnt really take it to a real pawn shop and we knew the probable outcome so husband sent out leaks into the community to people who might get approached about the gun by these sorts of people but that they didnt know that these people knew husband. Got that? So we got messages that the gun was being talked about by one neighbor a few doors up from the guy who stole it. Described to a T. Then it was moved. Last night a call came in that the thief and the one who last had it were seen at a drug dealers house and this dealer was seen with the gun. husband rushed over. As he gets there, the one who last had it was just leaving and he asked him if Chris was still there...oh yeah...he is still there. So husband goes in and blocks Chris's truck in so he cant leave the yard. Chris is denying, lying, shaking, whining...yada yada. Meanwhile the drug dealer comes out and says...arent you Corys dad? husband says...yes...daughter says come in here a second, I have something to show you. husband goes in and there is his gun! daughter says Chris brought this to me and said it was his and he wanted to trade it for dope! husband told him oh hell NO! In the end because the daughter was really a decent guy who went to school with both Cory and Jamie he gave the gun back to husband free even though he paid Chris $170 and Im sure he will take it out of Chris's hide. Im also sure Chris is in for one heck of a hiney whipping from my side of the fence because of this. Chris is still lying about Cory hand over fist. He sticks Corys name in on every theft he performs. As this proves...Cory doesnt do them all. Cory is looking to whip him now. And trust me, Cory can do it. We are going to take out a restraining order because we cant press the charges because we promised the daughter not to put his name in it because he gave it back free. The drug dealer really cant afford to have the cops involved in his life...which I understand. He was good about things.
