I will pin this on top. We all work hard for our camera gear. Then some low life comes along and claims it as theirs. Well this thread is for all members to post the serial number and description of any camera gear that was borrowed for life.

If we reclaim one camera and put one crook in jail this thread has done it's job!!!!!!!!

ONLY POST EQUIPMENT THAT HAS BEEN STOLEN ALONG WIH A SERIAL NUMBER AND DESCRIPTION.

Coming in the future a reward program, after I figure out a way to fund it.

Over at apug.org, someone posted that most of their equipment had been stolen last weekend. They've posted serial numbers and descriptions. I don't know them, but is it okay to post a link so people here can see what's missing?

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets see if we can help djklmnop get his/her equipment back!!!!!!!!

My house was burglarized over the weekend. Lost a bunch if not almost all of my camera equipment.

If anyone happens to run into any of these on ebay or a forum, please send me a PM. The seller should be from San Diego. It is known to be an organized asian group that burglarizes on asian business owners and their homes. This is becoming a bigger problem than ever for San Diego. I've never seen crime this high before of the many years I've been here. I need to get out of here!

Remember, we can't post the description and serial numbers of stolen equipment if we don't know them. Record all the necessary data and file it in one or more secure places. Having said that, I probably won't do it. With many dozens of serial numbered photographic items, it would be quite a task. Anyhow, breaking and entering is not as common here in rural Missouri as in many urban areas. I'll take my chances here rather than move to a "safe" part of the world.

Many years ago I loaned a friend a Nikon F outfit for a school year in England. While travelling in Switzerland she forgot and left it on a train. The station people called ahead to the end of the line, and sure enough, someone had turned the gear in to that station. That's Switzerland. A country where many homes have an armed and trained member of the military reserves is inhospitable to thieves.

You know WE work so hard for what we go and buy, hoping to get the best and most durable equipment, but if it is stolen it seems that something is stolen from you -- like a piece of your hart.

I am saddened by the news of your stolen equipment. People like that deserve a good beating, instead of the slap on the wrist they get in court.

Several years ago I came home and observed someone in my garage as I drove up the driveway. As I got out of my car he tried to walk away with my chainsaw. There was no one else around, just he and I. When the police arrived he was still unconscience and bleeding from a good sized gash over his right eye.

The cops asked what happened. I said he tripped and hit his head on the asphalt. He claimed I punched him. Guess who they believed. That was the last I ever heard of it. I still have that chainsaw.

Did I forget to mention that I used to be a boxer?

Boz, good for you! Justice is best administered promptly and effectively, as long as it is just. Congratulations on being a fair judge.

Good on you Boz! I would mostlikely have forgotten my pacifism in that case also (especially when that guy is smaller than me).
