So here’s the story.
For those who want the short version here it is:
At 2:30 AM at Planet Hollywood, my brother’s very fancy brand new Droid cell phone was ripped out of his hands. 12 hours later, we have it back, from the criminals…No thanks to the LVPD.
I haven’t seen City Center, so my brother took me there to make my annual donation to Las Vegas gaming. Luck wasn’t on my side, as it never is, but I manage a few Crown on the rocks while I am playing, as well as a big bottle of water.
So we are cruising back to the car, it’s hot as fuck, 103 degrees at 2:00 AM. I am sloshing with Crown and water, so I need to piss. We get to Planet Hollywood and I just need to unload. So we go in there to hit the head. The place is bumpin’. Intrigued, I want to stay and hang out, you know, check it out. My brother is filming me with his phone which is pissing me off because I hate that. He is a nerd so he can’t walk five feet with out looking at email or the pictures or the movies. We finally make are way just outside the casino where he just cannot resist one more look at the movie he just took…That’s when it went nuts…
He was looking at his phone when this piece of shit rips it strait out of his hands. Half drunk and running on instinct I turn immediately and started chasing this mealy, cock sucking, loser piece of shit through Planet Hollywood at top speed through the casino. Now, if you so much as give the hint that you’re going to take a penny more from a casino than you should, you are going to be surrounded by security. But apparently, if you are a low life piece of shit who just stole something, nobody gives a fuck, they just get out of the way.
So I am chasing this ass-lick through the casino we hit some ropes, he jumps over, I go through them. That’s all it took, I lost a couple of milliseconds. He got a couple more feet on me. He hit a junction in the mall area and that’s where I lost him. But he was wearing sneakers, I was wearing Birkenstocks. Before the ropes I was inches for tackling the cock sucking mother fucker.
After the adventure security caught up with my brother and I. I am pumping full of adrenaline, and give them an ear full whether they deserved it or not. We filed a report, explained everything apologized where we should have and finally went home.
So my brother files the police reports and does all the crap he is supposed to do to file an insurance claim.
Then he checks ‘Craig’s list’. There, an hour after it happened, the piece of shit posted it for sale.
I went to bed, he continued to research.
I get up this morning. My brother made contact but they seemed to get suspicious and cut him off. I am not from here so I used my cell and I began a dialog with these cock suckers. I finally talk to a girl, the apparent mule. I told her I wanted to buy the phone real bad, that I have been looking for one, etc. She tells me that her sister has had it a month but she wants to switch carriers. Bullshit since the phone was released literally 3 days ago and the manufacture date was 7/7/10. Obviously my brother had all the documentation as he just got it.
We arrange to meet at a casino…I don’t want to say which one, these people were good to us and I don’t want someone to read and think they can do shit there.
We get there early, we let security know what was happening, they were not happy about it, but they were tolerant. Naturally, being a piece of shit criminal, the mule bitch was late. We were nervous and were prepared to bolt at the fist sign of trouble, we did not know who we were dealing with. We brought the receipt and docs for the phone with us. The mule shows up and we meet her. She hands us the phone and we start looking at it, we pull it apart and find the IMEI number. It matches the receipt and the box. Security surrounds us at this point. We tell her, that they stole this phone from us 12 hours ago. She freaks out. We agreed in the end, if she walked away, we would to. We have the phone back.
You know why? Because LVPD refused to help us. We made them aware of the situation. We practically were handing them an apparent ring (as researched proved it was) snatch and sell. They would not even so much as even send an officer to maybe inquire. We did it all by our shelves. We beat the criminals we got the phone back, with pictures and all…
Vegas is never boring…
I’d like to say fuck you to the thieves and the police…We won.
