I’d still do some personal investigating. Most of the time (at least around here), LEO aren’t very interested in following up on small time crime.
Lot's of locals on top of it. People are pizzed. The Stihl shop where the guy tried to sell the stolen backpack blower has pics and they have been posting on social media.

Morning fellas,

Pics coming in a bit, neighbour had a very big peppermint come down and I'm giving him a hand. Going to stick a new full chisel chain on Limby and let him go to work. Try to contain your excitement, @H-Ranch :laugh:
Yeah, it sounds like a job for the wheelbarrow for sure! :clap:

That's right, we went. Cowgirl has been showing some interest in scrounge assisting which is a Good Thing since loading up the ute/trailer is the bit I like least. As long as she doesn't start asking for her chainsaw back. My neighbour (Hugh) is 77 and he had a 70 year old friend there who was also a bit short on wood. The tree seemed to be almost all trunk with very few branches. Hugh got a cube or so out of the top the other day.

Here's the peppermint.

I did the easy bits first before working out what to do about the trunk which was mostly suspended. Used the 241 before switching up to the Limby. There wasn't much in between for the 460 to do today.

Cowgirl had a crack at splitting with the X27 and did a creditable job given she hasn't done a whole lot of it.

Called it quits for the morning at this point. Hugh's mate took prolly 2 cubes, I took one. Hugh is going to take the rest.

There's stihl a fair bit left in the log, prolly another 30 feet or more.

There's also a couple of videos that Cowgirl took. Apparently there's this thing called 'Youtube' which can be used to play such things. I shall investigate this new technology.

Thanks for all the pics and vids, and it is great to have such nice help, put please tell Cowgirl that I cringe when I see her splitting w/o boots on, and although they would not look as nice, jeans also provide a bit more protection. It only takes one mistake to regret decisions made!

My Grandson wanted to split wood with sneakers up at the cabin, and I would not let him.
