Sorry to hear about your misfortune Janx. Stealing from another really does suck, and it's amazing how many do it. Hopefully, somehow, you'll get your tools back.
Unfortunately, Missouri is the meth capitol of the world. And it's not only being made out in the hills...I constantly see local news stories about teenagers cooking meth in their parents house on the golf course in the burbs. Freakin' nuts I tell ya!
