He's active on his face book page, so he isn't dead. I'd file a claim with the postal service and report the theft to your post master. It takes about 30 days to get a refund, as long as you have your receipt and fill out the form, you should get your money back.
He deserves a negative rating and outing on the open forum, post any links you have to PM's between you two.

Getting arrested won't help. La Center is a small town. I think I'd get about 5000 flyers printed up detailing this guys thievery and hire teenage kids to put them on every car in every store parking lot in that town.

Amboy is tiny, real tiny. I grew up in a logging town pretty close to there. Everyone knows everyone else. Biggest pass time in a place like that is gossip. If word got out, it would be a hard thing to live down.

If in fact this is malicious and not some consequence or accident he should dealt with in the severest terms possible. As stated we all suffer from acts like this.

I’ll call the store myself on Monday....

If you google buddymackjr there is activity on other forums. If this is a con, no way you are the first. Could it be possible that you had the thief on the phone and this isn't the first call he's received?

Please read post number 10.....11 is asking about transfers. The reply to that inquiry states someone named David doesn’t like doing transfers and to let him do it.
