Angry Public announcement...theft at ARC in Temcula,Ca

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, there was a break-in at my local track. The on-site shop was broken into and a lot of merchandise was stolen. We figured it is someone who knows what they were looking at because it was mostly high price items which were taken. In example: kits, full sheet of OS P3 plugs, Losi8 chassis, chargers, starter boxes, Tamiya non-marking pliers, etc.. I know a lot of people have a lot of spares and stuff they are selling but if you happen to run into some1 who seems like they just robbed a hobby shop, they just might have! I am sure the track owner, Dan Cole, and all the loyal racers would appreciate if this person was dealt with legally. Thanks for your cooperation....

We will find this person. They don't realize how tight of a community we are,... we are on every web site including ebay, and at every track.

Note to the person who did this:
Please just box the stuff up and drop it back at ARC, its hard enough for tracks and shops to remain open with the economy how it is, and without theft like this. Think about it.

Yeah, I read this the other day on S-Grid. Very Sad! ARC looks like a first class track, and soon be have a shop.

All it did was hurt everyone. (Including the thieves) I hope they catch these thieves and throw the book at them. When they do find them, there RC racing will be over. After there jail term, (long I hope) who's going to let known thieves race there track....


I hope they can pull threw this, during these very hard times.....

Meth addiction is a horrible thing and it inspires the worst in people. Sorry for your sense of violation and good luck recovering your loss. I hope insurance can help ease the blow.

There was no insurance for certain reasons surrounding the area.
