Sometime sunday during the day somebody went into my tent, emptied both of my backpacks and jacked all my valuables, which thankfully only equaled to about $180 or so... It could've been much worse. I talked to a lady who was vending, she said there were some people running around with guns sticking up vendors during the night, who were later caught by the police... They were from pod 9. Anyone else have any experience like this?
When I left my two friends were still in the tent, I expected to be back before they left, but I ended up hanging out in centeroo for longer than I thought I would. They left the tent without realizing I had valuable stuff in my one backpack... It was actually one of the green lasers that you can twist the lens to make the shape changes, a slice of good green, and two brand new never been used pipes I was going to bring home as gifts for friends... All and all I consider myself lucky they didn't steal my clothes too, and I didn't have anything of real value in there... but still, its fucked up that people would do that. Not good family.

i was in pod 9 and my neighbor got his bag stolen (and apparently when calling into the credit card companies there were already a few charges on the account) - and leaving another girl told me her bag was stolen as well.
I thought it was pretty crazy, didn't hear it happen last year (although I'm sure it happened...)

i had friends in pod 9...when they got back from centeroo on sunday night their tent was sliced open and all their clothes, leftover food, and coolers were taken. luckily they kept the majority of their valuables in their camelbaks
We were camped out in deep space Griswold. No pods orbit that far out. Witnessed no crime. My son said a couple girls carrying toilet paper peeked into out tent. They said they needed a private place to piss!? WTF? Were they gonna piss/crap in our tent? Just as believable is they used the toilet paper as an alibi to case tents for valuables. I'm not in position to judge. The portajohns were as bad as I've seen.
yeah, i was in pod 9. Nothing got stolen from my tent except some really cool green pants and I had hanging on my canopy to dry and ALL OF MY GATORADE. Dude...why the fuck did you steal my pants? Gatorade I understand, it was hot and I hope it helped if you needed it but I liked those pants. Weirdo. I guess I shouldn't complain because my neighbor had his camera stolen but stealing is just about as LOW as you can get.
I wonder if the robberies there were all the same person/people... The people who robbed me weren't looking for clothes they were looking for money/valuable items... I actually ended up re-buying the laser, and the pipes (actually paid $40 more in total the second time around.) I hope whoever got me was in the group thats now sitting in jail.

The girls in my group had their tent slashed Sunday night. Apparently there was a man rummaging through their stuff, but our neighbor accidentally scared him off before he could take anything. He slashed the tent and took off running.
We were technically in pod 9, but a little further out in bfe.
My neighbor's son's iPhone was jacked in their tent at night, as was my phone which I kept next to my head as an alarm. Either that or they both went entirely missing, which seems a little too coincidental.

i was in pod 9 over in the back corner by the long path by the horse stables. we had no issues. we had some cool neighbors too keep the scene down also. so if your reading this Theo with the red honda you guys roole!
Last year at Bonnaroo 2009 we actually caught a guy stealing peoples shit. It was Monday morning around 6 AM and I was walking in a daze to take a piss at the port a potty and I witnesssed a guy running in my direction with 5-6 backpacks with a guy maybe 20 feet behind him yelling to stop him, so I did. I tackled him and the guy chasing him ended up beating him up, I normally don't like this kind of stuff but these people don't deserve or need to be at Bonnaroo.
Pod 9 - sunday night, either while we were at dave while we were sleep, someone went in our truck and took a bookbag, a powerpack, ipod, chargers and i think my camera because i havent found it yet. It wasnt locked, so i guess its our fault.
We were on the other side of the water from pod 9. Neighbors had his toiletry bag and backpack with all his clothes, camera, and iPod. I think a cooler was taken too. One of the guys that rode down with me had his Gatorade stolen.
