A Tacoma man went out to his vehicle this morning and discovered $200,000 worth spinal implant hardware had been stolen.

The car was parked in the 2100 block of North Prospect Street. The man went outside about 10 a.m. He found the vehicle had been broken into and the equipment stolen, police spokesman Naveed Benjamin said.

Benjamin asked anyone who spotted the equipment to call the Tacoma Police Department.

“It’s pretty specific items,” he said.

    Okay, I am generally one to advocate for not blaming the victim, but you left 200,000 worth of equipment in your car in Tacoma? It’s not like we are talking about a Miss Washington Crown or something of the like.

    I wondered where those went!

  4. I left my other car in my car,It disappeared also….

  5. At least some people are dumb enough to leave really, really expensive stuff out in the open in their cars so that the thieves won’t be bothered breaking into MY car to look for the non-existent, ‘hidden’ stuff that they can’t see isn’t really there. Thanks, guy for providing the diversion and saving me the cost of new windows and locks.

    It was a spineless Democrat trying to gain an advantage over the other members of his party.
