Cuff links & perfume at $8,000? And Everyone should remember NOT to leave their $42,000 rings on the floor of their car. Hmmmmm Very strange indeed I find
One of the desk attendants at 24 Hour Fitness had told me the person responsible for the previous three thefts was caught using a stolen credit card. I am now doubting that story, and agree that it would be useful for members to have the management made a statement. At the very least something from the Sheriff’s Department about this problem, as it is continuing and doesn’t seem to be isolated.
I would really like a statement from 24 Hour management about their security measures in light of all these locker room thefts.
Who in their right mind leaves platinum and diamond rings in their car?
