Hi Justin !
No, I've seen my friend on Tuesday night, and no, the camera was not retrieved.
The car insurance (it was a corporate car) paid a very small part of the price (way less than a quarter...) but he has not got his property back.
They only stole the camera. So he may had been followed and tracked. If this is true, the camera won't show soon or will be tampered to show another serial than the one we look for.
