Next time this happens, leave a loaded pistol on the foot of your bed or on your dresser in plain sight, this will deter any assholes who would otherwise assume you are a panzy with a nice ride and steal your shit. People won't steal pistols with serial numbers because all you gotta do to retrieve it is call all the local pawn shops..

NEVER trust anyone. Friends included.

EDIT: I keep a walther P99 in my glove box at all times. I once had a very bad experiance in the ghetto with my BMW. Enough said. One time my ex-gf opened it while I was driving, saw the gun, looked at me...slowly shut it and no words need be spoken. You'd be very surprised the effect it has on people. Impression is everything, even if your a scrawny kid you can intimidate people.

Banks can track serial numbers, yes. I think your local FBI office can notify banks to be on the look out of 2 dollar deposits. It's a queer number so it wouldn't be difficult for the bank teller to make a quick call to agent so&so. More likely if they were stupid enough to steal it they are stupid enough to spend it at the videogame store / liquor store (no reputable drug dealer would ever take a crisp stack of $2 bills, too afraid).

Consider the money lost for good, but you should file a police report. You have a better chance of catching this person if you know the serial numbers. But I doubt this person is going to deposit the money in the bank.

The FBI won't even deal with you for $300. Also, the police is not going to question everyone depositing a stack of 2's unless the serial numbers matched.

If you know the serial numbers, go onto Where's George and see if they're being tracked.

This is absolutely one of the most ignorant statements I have ever heard. Do NOT do this.

He's from NW Florida... There are certain parts of this country where carrying a gun... is not the worst idea.

Can't do this in most major cities though..

I'm from Miami working in Oakland Park/Pompano. Do NOT leave a gun in plain sight. A 5 year old knows NOT to do this.

Uhh no, this is a retarded idea.

OP, just invest in a safe and put all your stuff in there when you have people over, especially people who are not close friends and family.

Thanks for the idea guys, and while I believe having a gun is good in some instances, it would not have done me much good here. I got a lockbox (Can't afford a safe, box was free) and keep it hidden in my apartment. I guess I'm going to call the police and a few banks, I still have one of the twos, but none of the ones.

definitely if you have the serial numbers they can track them, they will show up somewhere and possible lead back to the person who took them. I would file a police report and if you have some idea who was in your place tell the police who and they will definitely speed up the recovery.
