    LOST: House was burglarized over the w/e

    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!

    Ouch is right! sorry to hear this. This is the reason I bought a gun safe, I did not want the guns stolen and/or my camera equipment. If they can take a 1500 pound safe bolted to the floor, they deserve the contents...

    I am not a 35 mm user, but if I run across these items on e bay I will holler.

    Damn, that bites. The police usually don't do this so you might-Make a xerox of everything you have like serial numbers and such, then drop them off at every pawn shop in the yellow pages. Our school got a few laptops, that had disappeared, back this way. Might work.

    Ebay does not make people list serial numbers in their auctions so is there any way to know if they are being sold on Ebay?

    I think the best way is the combination by which it may be sold in. All of my lens' as well have a UV filter, Hoya S-HMC or B+W multicoated and have rubber lens hoods.

    I am so sorry to hear that. That kind of intrusion of your home and personal property is a nasty, invasive crime. I am happy that you and your family are safe.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    My condolences. I know exactly how you feel, only in spades. When I owned my small engine business, we sold Stihl power equipment. In ten years, we had exactly 10 criminal occurrences including at least six break and enters/thefts of various kinds. We got nothing back and on the last one, when the thieves stole my equipment trailer, the police didn't even bother coming. They just took a report over the phone and gave me an occurrence number.
    I still get pretty warm when I hear someone talking about the "screamin' deal" they got on a ---- from a guy who knows a guy who.....

    my sympathy to you - I hope all goes well with the insurance.

    So sorry to hear this has happened to you. I certainly hope they capture these thugs. Just makes you wonder, doesn't it.

    I'll certainly keep an eye out.
