Be on the lookout for my stolen gear.

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Mitchell, Apr 22, 2007.

  1. Just had my car broken into while at my son's little league game. Stolen were my:

    D2X Serial # 5036647

    28-70mm, f2.8 zoom Serial #273966

    300mm, f2.8VR Serial #200198

    If any of these turn up in any of the boards you see, please let me know.

    Mitch, as much as I would like to say, "You have to be kidding", I know that you aren't. I am so sorry to hear this terrible news. I hope that your car insurance or other insurance will cover this loss. Mitch, I honestly am speechless.
  7. Mitch, I'm so sorry to hear this...I know I would be devastated if I lost my gear like this...

    I'll keep a watch out...I subscribe to several boards, so I'll watch out...

    Take care...

    Sorry man, that really does suck.
  9. After my car was vandalized while parked in a remote parking area (they couldn't break the double pane windows out but still did #2K worth of damage) I simply no longer leave any gear in my car. Yes, it's a pain to carry everything in each day. In today's world however; it's a necessity. Damn sorry for your misfortune.

    A fellow bird shooter had his side window broken out. . they then removed the back of his rear seat to access the trunk. . . .there were 2 bags in the trunk. . .1 with all his camera lenses and the other with camera gear manuals. . . thankfully they took the bag with the manuals. So the lesson learned is even if everything is kept out of sight in the passenger compartment, they will still get into your trunk. The cops called it a "Smash and Grab."

    :frown: I would like to say I'm shocked but sadly enough I'm not, my fear of this happening to me keeps my high end gear home unless it's attached to me personally but this is not how it should be. I have little tolerance of those who have no conscience and feel they have the right to take from others:mad: . I hope your insurance company takes care of you, wishing you a speedy insurance check and some new gear. - Jeff
  12. Mitch,

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope your gear is recovered.
  13. Very bad news. Be sure and check with the car insurance and homeowners insurance.
  14. Mitch, that is just horrible! I'm sorry it happened to you. I hope your insurance will cover everything.
  15. That pretty much sums it up.

    Hope the insurance is quick and painless.

  16. Not only do I hope you recover your losses through insurance, I hope the police checked for finger prints? Maybe I watch too many movies, but I'm sorry it happened!
  17. I can't even imagine finding that.

    Man..., I don't what to say.

    Really, I'm just sitting here watching my cursor blink.
  18. And at a little league game no less!! That means it was most likely either another parent or a big brother to one of the kids there.
  19. Terrible News. I am sure sorry to hear of your bad luck.
    Is there a way that you could notify Nikon? if they ever show up for repairs can the serial numbers be flagged? Here the pawn shops are connected some how to the police through a computer system and they have to log serial numbers, and identity of people bringing in items for pawn. For it to work tho' you have to file a report wit the police which I presume you have done. I would start looking on E-Bay too. I hear it is a good place to sell stolen items.
  20. WOW Mitch that really sucks I am so sorry to hear that hope whatever inusrance it is covered under will replace for you
