Luckily this character isn't around here. Unluckily, he/she got one of mine anyway.

At present, it does appear that he isn't doing anything other than ganking the TBs, but what's to say he won't move them at another time? I guess I don't know enough about it...

'Theft' just placed my TB in a cache. Looks like our concerns were unfounded! Very Happy

I hope you're right. It's odd that the cache is "Cemetery" He put a bunch of bugs there. I hope someone goes to look for it soon.

One of my bugs has ended up in the "cemetary" cache also. It seems like this Theif is one BAD apple. Mad
Anyone headed down to Kansas anytime soon?
Please check into this cache if you do.

this guy picked up 10 of them to re-distribute.

if you read some of the logs, theft or sleuth has a buddy/nephew, and they go at night. once they were escorted by the police.

Old Black was placed into another cache today. The person who had it even posted a photo pertaining to its goal. I'm convinced all is well.

Today's thief appears to be one of the corporate types: This T B was stolen from a high profile cache, where the owner generally watches who comes to the cache. I don't know anything about who took it, or where it's at. I don't care.

I grabbed the bug back, and in the transformation process made a disparaging remark :

http://www.geocaching.com/track/log.aspx?LUID=aac31937-1db9-4ae7-b631-b3c4bfd12bbf

Shortly thereafter, I could no longer access the bug page. I grabbed 2-3 others from muggles, or caches and have had no problem.
