A series of ship thefts has left many citizens frustrated and demanding swift action. LDF and SRN joint forces conducted operations that tracked down the root of these thefts to a group known as the Daluma Guild. A raid of their compound turned up several of the reported stolen ships. Unfortunately, the group was running a "chop shop" and officials believe many of the other stolen vessels were already stripped down and sold for parts by the time LDF/SRN joint operations arrived. Three individuals were apprehended and have been incarcerated on charges of piracy.
