An Absurdly Long, $150,000 List of Stolen Nikon Gear


On one hand, it sucks to have all these stolen. On the other hand, I'd like to congratulate the thief lol!

I'd to hope the thief gets caught and beaten severely by the police. I am going to go ahead and guess you never had your car stolen before. It can be a real nightmare and very unpleasant experience.:thumbdown::thumbdown:

I wonder if this was one of those black and yellow vans that I see on the highway around NYC sometimes. It was probably a lucky hit and the numbskull didn't realize what he was doing.

I agree. Take the money, buy some other gear and pocket the rest.... The person wont be selling the gear so who's gonna run the serial?

You can track stolen camera's via any photos posted... as the serial number can be embedded in the photo:

What if he never looks ? I didn't read the entire article but if it's his and he doesn't pursue it then I don't see it happening. Still a crazy situation though. That's a lottttttttt of gear.

I'd cover that van with Canon graphics ASAP. It would be the perfect crime instantly.

It was probably some punk out for a joy ride. He probably trashed the van and then burned it in a field without ever realizing what was in it.
