BBC burned down
Beachcomber - the difference is that I specifically stated openly what my source was and that it might not be factual. It was not presented as a statement of fact or suggested to be the final answer on the topic. But before people get all crazy assuming that it was insurance fraud, they might want to check the alternate posts that say the theft occurred post-fire. This isn't hypocrisy, it's part of a dialogue.
At what point did the generator disappear?
Sometime between closing till the fire started?
After the fire started?
After the fire burned itself out or was put out?
This is the news article that was linked earlier in this thread, http://stcroixsource.com/content/news/local-news/2012/01/20/fire-destroys-westside-restaurant , and it says:
"Chef owner Keith Weitzman said when he arrived at the restaurant this morning [several hours after the fire] he noticed one of the restaurant’s metal doors had been pried open and a 1,000-watt generator was missing. Police confirmed the gate was intact the previous evening and was not damaged by the firefighters."
