• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Ummmm, if he was arrested 12/10/09, how could he possibly in prison that quickly? Perhaps you meant he is in jail, awaiting court proceedings/bond hearing, etc?

If he is in prison already, remind me never to get arrested in Iowa, they lock a person up fast! lol

Can we get our radios back?

I wonder if everyone that got scammed can get their radios back?,since I know the DesMoines PD probably confiscated all the stolen property.

Why be leary of buying radios online? This guy was on here only a month with a total of 8 posts and no real good feedback before ripping people off,I wouldn't even have considered dealing with him.

Theres alot of great guys on this site just do a little research before making a deal.

I do hope you guys get your radios or money back from this guy though I really hate when this crap happens to people.

I think that most states have laws to the effect that once the stolen property has been used as evidence in the trial and the guy is found guilty the stuff is returned to the rightful owner.
