If the shock kills them drag them inside and shoot them and that way there is no lawsuit against you

I hate to here about things like this, but this is the sad world we live in

I would put posters up at the local shops and maybe even an advert in the local paper.

REWARD!! $100 (or whatever)
with a description and your phone number
"No questions asked"

I would rather pay 1/4 or even 1/2 of what it would cost to replace it, rather than go through the cost and headaches of trying to rebuild it all.

Nothing wrong with asking some questions if it does show up again. I would pay the person whatever the reward was, then say "Can I ask where you found this? I would also have a mate or a family member take some photos of the transaction taking place and try to get the license plate number, then give all of that info to the cops. Even if you didn't get your reward money back, at least you got your stuff back at a bargain price, and maybe catch the rat bastard thief!

My suggestion......have your wife fill the keg with lots of chocolate goodness and set it outside. Then try not to laugh when the theif attempts to run off with the keg only to have his ass beat down by your wife! LOL No man can separate a woman from her chocolate. Guard dog? Hah! Guard wife!

A big rotwieller on your porch will generally deter. So will a yappy little dog. Make too much noise

my neighbors have three yappy little dogs who bark like crazy if they see someone, but unfortunately they were inside that night (because of the weather)! oh well... i've learned my lesson and won't be so careless w/ my things next time.

by the way, thanks for all the suggestions, etc., etc., etc.

If you are going to go to the police, I would take a little time to consider the source of the kegs in the first place. Some of the craigslist kegs are of questionable legality. I wouldn't want the situation to get any worse. Just sayin'.

Cheers,
