I have seen somekind of paint, that is clear, that if touched, you shine a black light on the persons hand that touches it, they glow... but I don't know where to get it, just have seen it on TV

All markings are easy to take off and nail polish is way to easy in my mind to remove. Most households have nail polish remover floating around in it somewhere.

What I would do is inscribe your initials on the metal pieces. A dremel with the right tip will do it. Either make it big and bold so a thief will think twice or hide it so you can catch them after the fact.

Hmm.. I'll see if I can find that. It's technically not my tack seeing as I lease the horse =/

Although that could work I think she's taking it to her house because I haven't seen it around at all. Although her parents might see it, but again I don't want to be writing all over it because it isn't my tack =/

I just read a news article about a church where there were nighttime thefts of copper and other stuff. They put a baby monitor in the church and hooked it to a TV and took turns watching...they saw them, called the police, and caught the guys!

If it isn't your tack, have you told the owner of the tack what's going on?

I would definitely notify the owner of the barn, chances are you're not the only one who has things going missing. There are some really dishonest people out there, I'm really glad my barn is small enough things like this don't go on. I don't really have any suggestions..sorry not so helpful!
Good luck finding the perp!!

Here is an idea...lol...I just bought my son a spy camera for xmas. You get it at walmart or toys r us and it takes pics based on movement...if you look at the box for the camera it explains how it works. If you try it, maybe set it up somewhere close and kind of hidden, then put a note on the actual camera that says, "stop taking my stuff I know who you are" so that way if they here it go off (we have not opened the box yet of course b/c he is getting it for xmas) and they find it, they will see the note and be like oh shoot...I have had stuff taken over my years of boarding and its just darn right rude and now we have our own place thank goodness. I think the camera cost 25 dollars or something like that, but might be worth it considering how much it could cost to replace tack and supplies...if they are brazen enough to take equipment I wouldn't be surprised if your fly spray gets used up quick etc etc. Good luck :)

So this isn't your tack, but someone else's? Why not just alert the BO and tack owner and let them deal with it? It's not really up to you to catch this thief.

True... I already have the BO involved. She knows somebody has been taking "my" stuff. She told me to keep and eye out =)

Put up small hand written signs in the tack room stating "Smile, You're on Candid Camera".
