That is awesome. Congrats on getting your stuff back.
One kinda funny part about it. As I was sitting in Starbucks and waiting for him to arrive a male baristas looked at me and asked if i was waiting for a short Asian guy. I was kinda shocked because he man sounded Asian over the phone.
"Why do you say that?"
"Oh, I saw your camera boxes (which I had brought as proof of ownership) and there is an Asian guy who meets people here all the time to sell camera gear, phones, and stuff. We've told him we don't want him doing that here but he keeps coming back."
"Well, that might not be a problem anymore."
At which point he walked away to do barista stuff. So after I got my gear and the police detained the guy the barista looked at me, smirked, and said "Ah, I see what you mean now."
"He tried to sell me my own stolen stuff."
He then gave me a free pumpkin latte.
