If you had money stolen from you wallet while it was in your desk, and then you leave money in your wallet in your desk again then I'm not sure that a proper solution could be explained to you in simple enough terms.

Maybe we could have piggy translate some of the good ideas to you.

Why don't you leave it in the car instead of at your desk?

I don't understand people that leave a wallet laying around.

Damn it why did it take this long, for someone to say this.

Put your wallet in your fucking pocket, and knee cap the motherfucker for stealing cash out of your wallet.

This.
Keep your cash in the jeans pocket and the business cards in the wallet.

I use one of these bastards. It hold my CCs, folding money, and it's damn durable. I keep it in my front pocket, and it's only slightly thicker than my cell phone.



edit: I spent $12 on mine.

My wallet never has cash, so it gets left around a good bit I guess if you want a tow, you could steal my AAA card. Odds are the good one is already gone though

Tough crowd. He said he keeps it in a backpack at his own desk, while it's not what I'd feel the most comfortable with it seems pretty reasonable, its not like he's keeping stacks of money next to the keyboard.

But then again I don't blame the victim of crimes just because there's some temptation for shitheads to act. But maybe I'm wrong, maybe it is the girls fault for getting raped because she dresses too slutty.

No experience with this stuff, but your thread triggered a semi defunct recollection of someone talking about a powder that stains the skin when it comes into contact with it giving a visual indicator that doesn't need anything to make it show up except moisture.

If the white girl was walking through East St. Louis at night after she had already been raped in East St. Louis then it's her own fault.

Op had already had money stolen. He put money where the thief could find it again. Yeah, I blame him for not protecting that which he knew was at risk.

For all you guys jumping on the bandwagon about not bringing my wallet / cash into work. Yes, obviously that is a solution. But.......

What about my laptop?
My mouse?
My camera?
My gopro camera?
My memory cards for them?
My phone?
My phone charger?
My memory cards I use in the robots?
My coffee cup?
My micrometer?
My dial calipers?
My jacket?
My hat?
My $600 welding helmet?
My whole bag full of tools?
Etc......

All this stuff is either brought to work or stays at work every day because I use it at work every day. It's ridiculous to not leave anything unlocked that I'm not in immediate sight of. If he's stolen cash, he'll be stealing something else next. Somebody already stole another guy's $150 Surefire flashlight. What will be next?

Point is, there is a rat, and I'm going to catch him in the act. Thanks everybody for the suggestions.

I carry my cash with a clip, one CC in a custody and my DL (card style) in my pocket. Dropped the use of a wallet many years ago.

Some people put the CCs in the back of the iphone custody, but that's no good if you lose/get stolen your phone.

It's all a matter of experiences and habits.

Steal a bunch of clothes with those anti-theft tags.

Break open and use to create an ink bomb; triggered when the wallet is opened.

d be able to leave anything anywhere

Catch your theif. You should be able to leave anything anywhere at work without worrying about it getting stolen.

Keeping your wallet in your pocket will not get rid of a theif that needs to be removed from your workplace.

Time for a camera.... and then a group meeting with a presentation. Include the thief in the invite to this meeting.... maybe a peace officer too.


Ignore any idiot saying, "it's your fault your shit got stolen." This was at work, if you drop it accidentally in the hallway it should come back to you 100% intact.

If you leave your wallet out, I would skip the dye he could just say he was moving the wallet for you. And I doubt you want anything in your wallet to mark you.

Camera and once you catch him call a meeting and project his ass on the wall for all to see.

For all that say its his own fault for leaving it out, you're part of the problem we are currently facing in the country. Pointing the finger at the victim

Classification of Theft Offenses and Penalties in Nebraska
Like many other states, Nebraska classifies most theft crimes based on the dollar value of the property involved. Let’s take a closer look at the different levels of theft under Nebraska law.
Class II Misdemeanor Theft.
Theft constitutes a Class II misdemeanor in Nebraska when the value of the property stolen is $200 or less. Neb. Rev. Stat. § 28-518(4). This is the lowest-level theft offense under Nebraska law (sometimes called "petty theft").
Theft of telecommunications devices is an example of a more specific theft crime that qualifies as a Class II misdemeanor in Nebraska. Neb. Rev. Stat. § 28-515.01.
A second conviction for theft at this level will bump the offense up to a Class I misdemeanor, and for a third or subsequent theft conviction at this level, the offender will be guilty of a Class IV felony. § 28-518(6). More on these classifications below.
In Nebraska, a Class II misdemeanor is punishable by no more than six months imprisonment or a fine of no more than $1,000, or both. § 28-106. There is no minimum term of imprisonment for a Class II misdemeanor under Nebraska law, and any sentence of imprisonment must be served at a county jail.
Class I Misdemeanor Theft.
Theft constitutes a Class I misdemeanor in Nebraska when the value of the property involved is more than $200 but less than $500, or when the offender has one prior conviction for the theft of property valued at less than $200. Neb. Rev. Stat. § 28-518(4).
After a second or subsequent conviction of theft at this level, the offender will be guilty of a Class IV felony. § 28-518(5).
In Nebraska, a Class I misdemeanor is punishable by no more than one year of imprisonment or a fine of no more than $1,000, or both. § 28-106. There is no minimum term of imprisonment for a Class I misdemeanor under Nebraska law, and any sentence of imprisonment must be served at a county jail.
Class IV Felony Theft.
Theft constitutes a Class IV felony in Nebraska when the value of the property stolen is at least $500, but not more than $1,500; and:
when it is a third or subsequent conviction for the theft of property valued at less than $200, or
when it is a second or subsequent conviction for the theft of property valued at between $200 and $500. Neb. Rev. Stat. § 28-518(2)
Under Nebraska law, a Class IV felony is punishable by a term of imprisonment of no more than five years or a fine of no more than $10,000, or both. § 28-105. There is no minimum term of imprisonment for a Class IV felony. A sentence of incarceration for a Class IV felony must be served in an institution under the jurisdiction of the Department of Correctional Services if longer than one year, or in a county jail if less than one year.
What exactly is the real value of $500 in counterfeit cash?

I usually leave my wallet in my backpack at my desk so it doesn't fall out of my pocket while I'm on the factory floor working. This is no big secret. We all leave our wallets in our desks, backpacks, lunch pails, etc. Occasionally it might get left on the desk if I get distracted and have to run out on the floor quickly. There are 12 of us that sit in this room. It's not uncommon to be the only one in the room, so opportunities are endless.

So while I could start locking my wallet in my truck or something like that to prevent this from happening again, all I'm interested in doing at this point is catching the guy in the act. I downloaded software that uses the webcam on my computer to record everything, even while its locked. I'm planning to leave my wallet on my desk and let it run, and hopefully I'll catch him in the act.

Any other ideas?

This too.

OP, you get ripped off once, others have had other items go missing so you decide to continue to leave large bills in your wallet. Yes, you are piggy dumb.
