He is seen placing the saw in the back of his vehicle.

Anyone with information on the crime can submit an anonymous tip to Lyon County Crimes Stoppers by calling 342-2273, using the P3 smartphone tip application or the P3 web site at www.P3tips.com.

Aim-for-Lawlessness_&-Promote_Riots, you Left-wing bigots have been teaching :"social justice" instead of honesty, integrity and traditional morality, so now there is a generation of young people looting, and stealing what they were taught they are justifiably entitled to. Your left-wing public schools indoctrinate innocent children "social justice" and your Leftist university preaches group social injustice so live with it. You got nothing to complain about. You live in your own self-created dystopia. You have 2 cars, well, maybe your neighbor will covet yours, and take one or the government will confiscate it from you and give it to him. That's "social justice." You created it, you voted for it, now live with it, stop complaining.

But complaining can be very therapeutic. See, don't YOU feel better now?

Why is anti-intellectualism so rampant among Trumps supporters..., and why do they wear it like a badge of honor? It's so trashy. Trump says "If Biden is elected, he will listen to the scientists", and his supporters see it as a warning! These people hate education and it's terrifying.

^^ This guy is claiming schools teach students that they're "JUSTIFIABLY ENTITLED" to looting and stealing... he also claims social justice is stealing your neighbors car... sheesh...

Citizen V sounds like a disgruntled EX- employee.

There are I believe five different camera angles in this case. More throughout the store no doubt. The pictures are good quality. That seems like pretty good coverage to me.

This Virus escaped a Level 4 BioLab ! And we have the moxie to think a homemade cheetah print face mask will make a difference.

How easily programmed we are.

And if you believe this "bugle juice", then we are easily programmed!

You need to enroll in VT 101 and learn how virus transmission works. It's offered at ESU. Online only. It's part of the middle school makeup curriculum.

Having worked at bluestem for two years this place gets robbed constantly and they're isnt much they can do. Larry is up on the third floor looking at camera's occasionally and will call down to the employees to watch a person of interest occasionally, that's about the extent of security. And anyway these are a bunch of college kids making 8.00 to 8.50 a hour why even bother. And Kevin in tools cant be everywhere at once.

It's a business decision. Security costs money. If thieves' annual take is less than the annual cost of security, let them steal. Just raise the price of everything to cover the losses. To a business, stolen goods are tax deductible so the taxpayers pay for it anyway. Some areas of stores are more prone to theft than others. Think watches and jewelery. Some customers are scrutinized more than others by the cameras. Think black shoppers. White men stealing chain saws? Let 'em go.

CitizenV

That is correct and the first time i will agree with you. Half of the cameras are dummy cameras to make it look like people are being watched. Let them go and let the police deal with it.

And there are numerous isles with no camera coverage whatsoever. This place is begging to be robbed. I remember one May day when the power went out for 5 hour or so may be longer, they had people escorting people with flashlights to get their stuff but before that happened mass theft happened and nobody did anything. Point is bluestem is a easy mark.

CitizenV

And i am in no way condoning stealing. ;o

Is Bluestem or its customers exempt from the mask mandate? He looks like he walked in and out without a mask... he also looks like he bought stuff... he came in with nothing and leaves with a white bag? Did the checkout person not notice the big concrete saw? Maybe its time for Bluestem to hire some security?

Last time I was in Bluestem (2013?) was for a saw. They wanted my name and info before I could even take the chainsaw to the checkout register. They do the product registering and warranty stuff so you don't have to. I don't know if they still do that, but that's been the only place I've ever known that did it.

Good grief, enough with the mask nonsense.

Aim_High

We're in the middle of a pandemic and currently have the highest number of active cases to date. Wearing a mask is pretty important. Certainly not nonsense.

That's what Herman Cain said! He used those words exactly.
