Milandro (and others): Yes, the triple X at the end of a number is so someone else can't claim theft. But the deeper problem is the hassle one would have to go through to prove the horn actually belongs to the accused.

Most police agencies would be accused of dereliction if they refused to accept a crime report from someone alleging a crime. THEN, the facts on the face of the report (the false allegation of theft) takes on a certain credibility because until proven false, it must be persued.

To prove ownership, one would most likely have to provide a receipt. I know I probably couldn't come up with receipts for everything I own with a serial number. So it would mean interviews and hassles far beyond the worth of just putting in the X's. DAVE
