This is a cross post from the 501st Terror Australis Garrison Forums...
Usually we are not allowed to mention armour suppliers names on the forums however I have run this past the CO and he has given the green light. I have received a formal request from Queensland Police Detectives to ask for any members or non-members to contact them in relation to Bentley O'TOOLE.
The following is an excerpt from Detective Chad LONERGAN's e-mail to me this morning:-
"I have seen a forum for the 501st where a lot of people have had bad dealings with O’TOOLE. I cannot get onto the website from the work computer but had heard that you may have some knowledge/involvement with the 501st. What I was proposing was to post my work e-mail Lonergan.Chad@police.qld.gov.au on the website saying if anyone has had any dealings with O’TOOLE where money was paid for an item but it was never sent or they never received it to contact me via e-mail."
It appears that O'TOOLE has been selling the same items over and over again [R2D2 units to USA & Spain recently] and after receiving payment for them never sends them. He then allegedly re-sells the same items a second, third or fourth time.
As stated above this is an official request if you have had dealings with O'TOOLE and have been ripped off or know someone who has - please contact Chad on his e-mail address. Your complaint and information will be treated with the highest degree of confidentiality.
If you have any questions please don't hesistate to contact me via PM - or you can just e-mail Detective LONERGAN.

I know a hell of a lot of people have had bad, shocking or worse dealings with this person, and now its finally come round where its all going back on him... Anyone who has been cheated by this individual needs to get in contact with Detective Lonergan with all the evidence they have on Bentley. Proof of payment, goods ordered and dates etc...
Finally those who have been done over by O'Toole can finally have a bit of closure. Its been a long time coming...
