I would certainly press it hard with the local police department you mentioned, providing them with e-mail transcripts, etc., and let them know you are filing a complaint against him via the IFCC also. Indicate to them the issue about fraud and theft repeatedly. Perhaps the more heat he gets, the more he will return the money or radio, or whatever. If these low lifes think that no one can reach out and touch them, they will be back on this website and others posting equipment for sale, taking equipment without paying, etc. This needs to stop and this jerk could be a good example of catching up to the theif! GL and all the best. I hope you are completely successful!
