You may learn who just broke into your hangar but the evidence may be inadmissible in court.

I don’t like it either.

Just an FYI; the guy in Texas selling headsets on Barnstormers is a regular poster (based Brenham) on the Pilots of America forum. I don't know the guy and can't say for sure that he's not the culprit, but he's been selling headsets for at least a couple of years now. Another member of the POA board is also based in Taylor and mentioned the hangar break-ins, but so far I've seen no rumblings towards the Brenham guy being kinda fishy.

To me it seems that if a fellow pilot was breaking in to steal and sell stuff, he wouldn't be active on a pilot web board...

Not necessarily. At our airport, it has been demonstrated that you can get in a locked hangar in a couple minutes.

Take a look at your siding panels. Are the screws exposed externally? Most are and it just takes removing a couple of them to get into a hangar.

Yeah, and remember that Airplane Repo show on Discovery Channel? They showed us all kinds of ways to get into hangars without the owner knowing.

Yep, I was a hit at T74 as well. When I mentioned it on POA, I was the only one that was known. I reported it to the police and they had no other reports. I assumed it was someone who had been in my hangar before and saw what I had. Oddly enough, the guy mentioned who sells headsets was one of those people. He flew in for lunch with some of my friends. I don't really know him and have no opinion on whether or not he was involved, but the police have his info.

I just found out a few days ago that David, and two other planes were hit as well. Honestly, we don't know if this is the end of it. Our city seems to have a wait-and-see approach instead of notifying tenants to check their hangars. A lot of pilots rarely come out, so they may not have discovered they're victims yet.
