I just got home from a gaming night at my local GW, (they run one every week but I rarely go there), but as I was about to leave, I noticed my figure case was missing. I looked around the whole store, but none of the cases were mine. I really hope someone just took the wrong case, but I'd like to hear your stories.
So, anything like this ever happened to you?

Boyfriend was a manager of eight years and has heard a hell of a lot of stories from stores he has run and from other managers. There have been people come in with empty/broken cases, leave them next to another case and leave with the case they KNOW isn't theirs. You get people leave cases behind, pick up the wrong case, etc.
My partner had a mini stolen from the gaming table when he was playing a regular, the mini is one of a kind in the area, so whoever took it wouldn't be able to use it in the store anyway. I've heard of someones' conversion being stolen and then seeing it used in a battle the next day, started a fight in the store and the police had to confiscate the toy until the two would speak reasonably!

people stealing plastic/pewter/resin is hilarious (for the theif, not the victim)
either way, somebody was going around stores and hobby centers nicking models left and right. caught him trying to steal a STOMPA. wonder what that huge lump in his hoody was.. sure wasnt cancer
Never had anything stolen myself, although I did accidentally take home someone's Tau army once from a store near me. Called the store up the next day when I realised it and organised a day to meet up with the other fellow in the store so I could give him his army back. Luckily he was a pretty regular visitor to the store so it wasn't too much of an issue. A little embarassing for me though D:.
Mate of mine lost a Leman Russ in our local store, I won't ever play there again, prefer to play among people I know at my club. Nobody there would do that.
Found your figure case yet? I hope you get it back. It's painfull to lose something you've spend so much money, time and effort into.
We haven't had anything like this in my local GW, not that I've heared anyway. Just sometimes a model from the intro-games tables gets taken.
@ bucketwalrus: Stealing a stompa? Whut? xD
No not yet,
I notified the staff before I left off course so they will contact me if anyone returns a case which is not theirs. And I posted a note on the norwegian WH forums but no replies yet
I just don't want to think someone has taken it on purpose...
Oh well, I just hope I get it back as it contains 1000p. -ish of painted High Elves.

I've never had any minis stolen however i have had dice cubes, tape measures and once a warhammer rulebook stolen.
Once at my store some kid stole loads of marines of the intro table then sold them back to someone at the store. he got caught.
The missile launcher marine for the intro tables at my store gets knicked with alarming regularity. No idea if this has changed since Black Reach.
But it just sucks losing models. Some tosser out there still has my first ever slann, but i take comfort in that it was so badly painted they probably couldnt do anything with it anyway (i was 11). Heres hoping no-one knicked your stuff and you'll get it back soon.
I just got back from my local GW, and someone had called them the day after I was there and told them they had taken the wrong case, so my case is back and I'm happy
