    Snowman, are you sure you're not getting 'punked'.

    Ski's get stolen right before Xmas? While you are at dinner?

    And there the only thing stolen?

    Actually it's neither. It's considered larceny. In this case grand larceny because of the value of the property.

    Terminology aside, it doesn't lessen the impact of the crime. Hope you can recover from it.

    Well, You have every legal right to confront them and tell them to stop stealing from you. if they make an awkward move, you then can say " I felt my life was in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm".


    I can't see any state law saying you can't ask someone to STOP from damaging your property or telling them to stop from stealing from you.

    Thanks for all the great advice. Robbed, burgled, larceny...It still sucks.

    I have checked with all of the neighbors and nobody saw anything. This is NOT uncommon where I live....a SKI RESORT. So there are many thieves here that do in fact target just skis & snowboards. Unfortunately no businesses nearby as I live in a neighborhood with nice single family homes....nobody runs cameras around either. This is a different world I live in....I deal with $1M - $20M homes daily...most of those don't even have security systems. So most residents truly do have a false sense of security.

    It was only my favorite pair of skis...probably one of the more expensive pairs. I do have 2 other pairs... At least they didn't take my powder skis...2 feet of fresh this morning.

    I hope I'm getting punk'd...But it seems unlikely that my family would steal my skis to have them tuned.

    Check the Pawn shops.....most thieves steal things for quick cash...pawn shop is where they usually go.

    In TX, it's considered 'burglary to a motor vehicle'. There is no offense of larceny... I guess it matters where you are...

    Now, back to the OP. I would definitely confront the BG in either situation... but that's just me... If he's on my property, the first thing he's going to see is the business end of my CCW. How he reacts, will determine what happens from there...

    Well if you're at a ski resort, it's most likely someone is going to try them out there. I'd buy myself a lift ticket, walk over to the line and wait for the moron with my skis to come by.

    Well, I suppose its much better to be burglarized than robbed. As for intervention if you catch someone in the commission, well that’s a tough call. It’s easy to think of what we would do, but until it happens, I have no idea. You may scare off the perpetrator or force the person and yourself into a deadly conflict. If the person doesn’t back down, you may have to shoot and there goes the neighborhood.

    Are you sure? Larceny doesn't involve unlawful entry into a structure to commit the crime. Burglary does. At least in the several states in which I've lived.

    +1 to checking the pawn shops. Here's to hoping that you recover your property.

    Thanks...but there are 3 resorts within 5 minutes (10,000 acres) and 7 (another 30,000 acres) more within an hour. I have a season pass and funny enough..my first chair ride today was with a guy who had a similar setup...not mine though. I'm trying to track down my serial #'s to help the sherriff. Any pawn shop in northern UT should be checking the serial #'s...according to the deputy.

    In Texas at night one can use deadly force to prevent theft of property.

    Update... So I just finished up my conversation with my Home Owners Insurance (USAA). I have a $1,000 deductible...replacement is $1,400. IF I file a claim I get roughly the difference..$400. The insurance company tells me that they are now required to tell me that if I file a claim they can (probably will) increase my premium at renewal time. I'm guessing that the possible premium increase could easily outweigh the $400 I would get after the claim. So by filing a claim I could potentially cost myself more than they reimbursed me for over the following year through premium increases. BTW I know they will increase it....my son was born 7 weeks early this past year and after $80K in NICU bills to my health provider (different insurance) they hiked my premium up significantly.

    I guess I just have to eat this one.

    Sorry you have been victimized.

    If I happened to come across someone in the scenarios you outlined, I would not confront the BG. I do not recommend risking one's life to defend property. I have come across more than enough examples in the news (and here on DC) where leaving your home and confronting burglars has lead to injury, death, legal trouble, or peronal guilt from killing someone.

    Since they were stolen out of your vehicle. What about your car insurance policy? Do you have theft coverage?
