    Back in another century, we worked on another planet (named Sydney). A friend of ours who lived up in the 'Cross (if you're Yankee - think Times Square) had once done a good samaritan act for a lady of colourful background. We met her once at his pad. Over coffee... anyone who was his friend was a friend of hers, did we need any gear ? Didn't matter if it was specialised pro stuff... no worries... a couple of days and 30% of the retail price !

    We declined the offer.... had all we needed, thank you.

    The thieves will have little trouble selling the stuff. That they ignored the Canon gear suggests they were stealing to order.

    This thread seems to be discussing a burglary in Australia. Things are a bit different here. In the town I live in, there was a burglary this past week. The thief contracted a sudden case of lead poisoning and passed away.

    Yes, it is Kings Cross.
    What disturbed us was the total lack of embarrassment/shame/guilt/whatever exhibited by the lady. It was the natural order of things, it was just something one did for friends - like buying a round of drinks.
