    Frisco? Is that San Francisco or something entirely different?

    Burgalers typically aren't super smart. Someone broke into my house once. They stole the 32" television and the directv dish off my roof.

    They did not steal the two extra smartcards sitting on the coffee table, nor did they take the small pile of laptop computers that were also on the coffee table.

    Frisco, TX. Basically a suburb northeast of Dallas. The Cowboys training facility is there.

    Don't judge the whole state based on S. Oklahoma! :wink:

    Very sorry for the owners of the shop. Hope the dipwads that did this get caught.

    Found out last night Adventure Scuba in Plano was hit first and then Frisco Scuba was burgled (since people want to be pedantic about it). Targeted Scuba Pro and Tusa BC's.

    I wonder why BC's, though? Thoughts? And do the police have any leads? Video or anything?

    I have been in retail management in northern DFW for several years. Theft and fraud have always been a problem but over the last 3 or 4 years it has become much worse. I don't understand the BCD thing either. Most things stolen in bulk are things that are easy to flip. Nike shoes or Yeti coolers are some of the hottest items. Ebay stores used to be a place where suspected stolen goods would show up regularly.

    Never call San Francisco, "Frisco." That's a big no no. LOL

    “Much worse” is very accurate. Besides ebay and CL many thieves use apps such as offerup, 5miles/similar to quickly unload stolen goods. I’m sure the other local shops (ST, International, Dive West etc) are aware of this and hopefully between all of them someone is able to catch them trying to resell.
