The Tinfoil Times
Stolen Detector Returned
Former member Warren Megibow visited the club with a complelling story.
While cleaning up at the beach after a hunt, he turned his back for a moment
on his brand new Minelab 3030 detector, and just that quickly, it was gone.
He had only used it a few times, and obviously was sick about it being stolen.
He contacted Everyone he could think of—Reiley’s Treasured Gold, Kellyco,
and law enforcement.
In the mean time, the thief had posted the detector on LetGo, the online sales
app. Michael Deiley met with the thief, who said he just needed money, and
didn’t want the detector any more. Michael bought it for $300. The detector
didn’t have a charger, and Michael contacted Frank looking for one.
When Warren contacted Frank about the detector, Frank remembered someone calling looking for a charger. He went through his notes, and found Michael’s contact information. This led them to Michael, who was able to
share information with the police. The thief was soon located.
Warren has his detector back, thanks to Frank’s notes, and Michael Deiley’s honesty and willingness to work with the authorities to get the detector back to its rightful owner.
June Meeting Minutes
Minutes of the June Meeting are brief this month due to my absence. Vice President Sue Chonoles shared with me her notes.
The meeting was called to order by President Nash. The program for the evening was on pinpointers, i.e. how to use and understand them. That
discussion was held by President Nash, and was very enlightening and informative.
President Nash introduced former member Warren Megibow. Warren told the audience how his Minelab CTX 3030 was stolen at the beach. Details
are in the article above.
The 50/50 Raffle was won by April Sovich. She in turn donated half of her winnings to the club.
