Had camera equipment stolen from my front porch today...Austin, TX (183/Spicewood Springs area)...I have a strong idea who took the package, but without video or eye witness, I have to go on tracking the items down a different way...he was however at my house after I put the package out & before I noticed it missing...never rang my door bell, didn't call me, didn't txt me...but admits to being here...By now, the items may have crossed hands at least once, maybe twice...The person in question is involved with drugs & has been known to steal, I have confronted him but only got lies & excuses or reasons why it wasn't him...I have filed a report with APD...If you for some reason come across any of these items, will you please contact me, so I can forward the info & hopefully get the items back...
The camera gear that was stolen was rented from an online supplier...I am waiting for serial #s from the supplier to add to the report...Theft or loss is not covered in their particular "insurance" option...So the cost of the gear would be put on me directly...Nearly $6,000...any & all help is greatly appreciated!
All I care about is getting this gear back...I could care less if someone gets arrested or spends time in jail, those 2 options don't help me in this situation...I need the gear back so I can return the gear, that way I'm not paying $6000 for gear I wouldn't buy normally...If the items come back to me in the condition they left, with all items that they were with in the 1st place, I will simply take the gear & you can be on your way, whether or not you had any criminal part in this
