    That's a lot of high dollar inventory to be a random theft. Hope he gets at least some of it back.

    Sounds like at least one or two organized groups are targeting dealers. It's a good time to for dealers to make themselves harder targets.

    This type of theft will continue until the groups doing them are caught.

    The substantial truth doctrine is an important defense in defamation law that allows individuals to avoid liability if the gist of their statement was true.
