when you see the ad, just act like a buyer and PRETEND to be completely naive. you need a new phone number. use a cheap prepaid phone.

show up with friends you trust.

get there early and let them spread out so it looks like you're alone.

maintain radio contact. use nextels or whatever cell phones you have available but use headsets so your hands are free.

you need at least one guy at an elevated position who has line of sight with the entire scene.

it's better to have two so at least one of them can manage the recording while the other mans the sniper rifle. if you have only one guy, he can mount the camera to the rifle.

use non-lethal rounds since this is a property extraction only. tasers, rubber, pellets or paint balls will suffice.

make sure you have at least one body at every exit point. if you're short on personnel you can have each man covering two exit points, but they must remain equidistant from each exit to minimize chance of losing your suspects if they decide to abort or split up.

if you really want to overwhelm the suspects, you can coordinate a flashmob via online classified sites such as craigslist or angieslist.

make sure to set them up using a throw away email addy from the free wifi at starbucks so it can't be traced back to you.

when the suspects show up, act like a buyer. covertly begin recording audio and video, inspect the laptop and confirm that it is yours.

if it is indeed your laptop, calmly tell the guy you know the laptop is stolen and get him to admit it by proving it's yours verbally so the mic picks it up.

if after about 75 seconds you can't get the guy to admit it or incriminate himself in any way, just tell him even if he isn't the thief, you know and can prove that the laptop is yours and that you're walking away with it.

point your finger at his chest to give the signal to your sniper to put the laser sight where you are pointing. tell him to stand down and be smart.

if he advances towards you or gets more aggressive, give the signal to escalate and have the sniper hit him in the gut, groin or knee.

tell him that was the first and only warning. if he agrees to stand down, walk away, trying not to draw too much attention to yourself and have your friends scoop you up around the corner so he can't see your license plate.

if he tries to escalate, have your friend hit him in the upper chest with an oc round or in the nuts with a rubber bullet. THEN calmly walk away and get in the car.

congratulations, you just got your laptop back.
Which season of 24 was this from?

well done. I am genuinely impressed with the thought that went into this
