Hey, I just wanted to give an update on my stolen Deadpool machine and I saw the original thread is closed.
After the game was stolen I contacted all the pawnshops in the area and also the detective working on the case did the same. One pawnshop I stopped into a couple weeks ago and spoke with the owner turned out we had a mutual friend one who was a Pinball enthusiast I told him my story showed him pictures of the missing items and he said that he would look out for anything that comes in.
Last Friday the thief contacted that guy and offered to sell him my stolen machine he sent him a picture identified it as my game and then we sent that picture to the police the police knew exactly where it was and who this guy was turns out he was a career criminal who’s been to federal prison before has been arrested numerous time.
We set it up with the owner of the shop for him to buy my game back so that way we can get his information as well and then the police can go ahead and do what they need to do to arrest the thief. he brought the game in over the weekend and sold it to the shop then the police went to the shop found the report Monday and then yesterday I had a friend of mine pick it up for me because I was still at work and couldn’t leave so right now the game has been recovered it’s at my friends house and I plan on getting it here soon
