    Off topic but apparently the definition of what a Quonset is has changed from what I know them to be.

    So what happens if your car was stolen and you already got your insurance company settlement....and then the car is found and returned?

    "A complete list of the makes and models of the stolen cars, trucks and SUVs has not been released."


    That's all I wanted to read in this thread
    Curious to why they searched the property in the first place. Interesting find.

    Agreed. Most of what I see in that picture looks rather pedestrian.

    I wonder if they were stolen using a tow truck or if these guys have the RFID smart key hacker. Apparently, the use a device to sniff the signal your key sends out when you use valet parking and then steal it later.

    They are property of the insurance company. They will sell them off @ auction.

    I've always associated Quonset with a modern, oversized metal "barn"?

    Quonset is supposed to be a 1/2 round shelter...

    Pole barn supposed to be a wooden barn like structure...

    This looks like a prefab metal building

    In typical media fashion, they over reported the actual "guns" seized in this "operation".

    They found exactly 4 sawed off shotguns. The rest were paintball guns, and the remaining "weapons" weren't firearms at all, but a mixture of cheap knock off swords, throwing stars, and similar junk.

    "Operation". That's a good one. Takes a hell of an operation to bust some small time weed and cocaine dealer that happens to play a lot of paintball, and who took a hacksaw to 4 crappy old shotguns. Real kingpin they got there, could be the inspiration of Breaking Bad part 2.


    Regarding the cars - that is a pretty snazzy Quonset, considering how regular the cars looked, I'd bet the building is worth as much as the stolen cars inside it. A couple of BMWs, but not much else, and whoever stole those Bimmers did the owners a favor in the first place, haha. I do wonder what they planned on doing with all the hot cars, not like some rich Shiek would buy that crap in bulk, and there sure didn't look like anything rare or collectible was in the building. Is there that much demand for stolen parts and what not? Just seems like a big risk for little reward - another mastermind criminal like the "200 guns" guy maybe.

    Fuckin A. Why raid people who have shitty shotguns that fire that have a short barrel. Or shitty knock off throwing stars and swords. They happen to have some drugs which means they have zero bad connections in life and will never use these weapons for protection, or enforcement.

    Cant believe the cops dealt with these Top of the line citizens.
