How frickin crazy is this story?!
I truley believe that the internet, and everyone posting are largely responsible for the recovery of this vehicle. It appears in my opinion that the theives simply got in over their heads, possibly hearing about all of the publicity associated with the theft, and abandoned the whole deal.
Thanks for all of you support, some times good guys do finish first!!

That is FANTASTIC News!!! I agree, the InterNet made the difference. But I have to wonder, did these scumbags even know what was inside when they stole it? The theft may have just been a theft of opportunity, then they got wind of what was inside. Probably hoping for some SONY HDTVs!! -Jerry:>)
