Do Not Buy Stolen Parts

We have had some parts stolen from our Wilmington NC shop that have been sold over this past year and may be currently listed or offered for sale. Unsuspecting purchasers were probably under the impression they belonged to the seller. However I have all receipts for purchases of vehicles from which parts were removed.

If you have information you can provide please pm me only. DO NOT POST ANY NAMES on this thread that may incriminate someone whether guilty or not. It is not my intention to defame anyone, I only want what is mine returned.

I have retrieved a few pieces of stolen merchandise not listed here from Forum members. Those I thank for your honesty in coming forward.

Still missing the following larger items.

If you purchased a white NAS 110 bulkhead or any of the other items listed below from Wilmington NC please contact me. Eventually the information will come forward so it may be better to get in touch now rather than when its mounted on your truck and have the men in black knocking on your door.
While some may argue it is difficult to prove once painted or installed on a truck. Stolen is stolen.

Certain parts I am willing to negotiate a buy back price if necessary.

Pretty brazen to make off with such a large quantity of large items.
Was this over a period of time or were they able to load all this up in one visit?

Between this and the vehicles, you have to wonder about do many things

Go back a few years, and who would have guessed that little old Wilmington, NC would become the epicenter of Land Rover drama for the entire North American continent.

This show has more sequels then the Cosby Show....(Briggs, take it from here. let's keep it going)

What Mark did not say is that most of this has been for sale on ebay and he's making you aware that if you bought it, you don't own it. Contact Mark as he asks if you recently bought some rover parts on ebay from a seller in Wilmington.

Did these parts disappear at the same time the D130 was stolen? Or is this a separate theft?

Just curious how this could happen two time in the course of 6 months.

Either way, I hope you get your stuff back.

So what are the eBay username(s) that sold the parts? If you can't say for certain that so-and-so eBay seller sold your stolen parts, what's the point of listing all of these things?
