Serial # 8474 stolen from residence in Town of McCandless, Allegheny County, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 in early morning hours of August 29, 2014, and reported to Town of McCandless Police Department. Police department has description of suspects, vehicle description, and fingerprints, along with discreet identifiable modifications done by owner.

Reward of $100 is offered for arrest and conviction of actor.

Theft has been reported to manufacturer, all major ham vendors and equipment service shops. Item should be returned to Town of McCandless Police Department, 9955 Grubbs Road, Wexford, PA 15090

If you come across someone with a new Alpha amp, please let the McCandless Police Department know about your findings. As I understand what happened, only the amp was stolen from the residence of a North Hills ARC (Wexford PA) member, which makes me believe the thief was a ham.

Anyone know the whereabouts of a certain homophobic ham (who had a brief Island sojourn and who lives in the general vicinity of the crime) on August 29, 2014?
