If it were me I would email copies of my pictures to the Blue Springs MO 
Police Department with my concern and copy the seller on my correspondance. 
It might be a long shot but what do you have to loose? I would also copy the 
pictures from the eBay listing so you have a record of what was posted. That 
eBay store might have received the item innocently but maybe the 
owner/seller isn't so innocent. You would think that AAjoeySALES would pull 
the listing until this issue is resolved. If I were him I wouldn't want to 
be in the middle of a possible theft claim.
