REWARD OFFERED FOR THE RETURN OF PARTY RENTAL GOODS.
Sad but true, the party rental business has fallen prey to the work of professional thief. It is believed the goods stolen from this party store in NJ on July 25 may be serving to build an inventory for an emerging rental store. It is reported that the credit card used in the NJ theft was used the day before in a similar theft of a Massachusetts rental store.
The owner of the NJ store gave me permission to re-post the announcement he placed on Craigslist today. It is as follows:
|WARNING TO ANYONE IN THE TENT / PARTY RENTAL INDUSTRY. THIS PAST WEEKEND A MAN CAME IN TO OUR STORE AND RENTED 300 WHITE CHAIRS, 30-60″ ROUND TABLES, 4- WHITE WOODEN BARS AND TWO CARPET RUNNERS. HE PAID WITH A CREDIT CARD OVER THE PHONE AND USED ALL THE CORRECT SECURITY INFO SO THE CREDIT CARD WOULD GO THROUGH. HE PICKED EVERYTHING UP WITH THE TRUCK YOU SEE IN THE PICTURES. THE ITEMS WERE NEVER RETURNED AND AFTER DOING RESEARCH I FOUND OUT THIS GUY ALSO USED THIS CREDIT CARD TO PURCHASE EQUIPMENT IN MASSACHUSETTS THE DAY BEFORE.THE TABLES, CHAIRS AND BARS ARE ALL MARKED WITH EITHER:
BELOW IS THE INFORMATION I HAVE ON THIS SCUM:
A security camera was able to catch much of the transaction for publishing
We encourage you to re-post this information far and wide in the hopes that other party rental stores in the North East do not become victims of this continuing activity.
If you have any leads to the whereabouts of this inventory contact:
