At this point I don't think it confrontational to show up and ask to have your property returned to you. If HE decides to be confrontational I would make that call on the authorities then and there. BTW, not the local police but the sheriff's department. As was with my case, communication is key in a relationship between consumer and purveyor when money changed hands. Notice how quick a response I got here on a forum even though direct phone calls and emails went without response for long periods of time... Wait for it....LOL!!!
