"Big, big thank you." "This is really amazing" -Claudia (Camera's Owner and Stolen 911 User)
The camera was bought used online for over $4000 to a buyer in New Jersey. He thought something was suspicious and Googled the camera's serial number which led him to the Leica's listing on Stolen 911. The camera had been reported stolen 10 months earlier across the US in San Francisco. The buyer contacted Stolen 911 and turned the camera over to his local police who confirmed it had been reported stolen. The camera has been returned to a grateful owner. The buyer was able to make a claim through the online seller to retrieve his cost.
The lenses and other items listed still remain stolen.
My boyfriend and I were sitting in the lobby area on the ground floor of Embarcadero 3 in San Francisco, and we were looking at my computer. When we looked back down after an hour or so, we realized that his backpack which had been placed in between our chairs had been stolen. Items in the black backpack (brand: Arcteryx) are as follows:
2 black lenses:
Leica 50mm f1.4 ASPH (serial: 4132831)
Leica 28mm f2.8 ASPH
2 silver lenses:
Angenieux 50mm f1.8
Leica 35mm f2 version 1 (serial: 1656146)
Camera: Leica m10 (Black) (serial: 5231356)
Paul Smith black bomber jacket with palm tree print
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. These camera/lenses mean the world to my boyfriend, it is how he sees and documents the world, our travels, and our time together. He is from HK and was visiting me in SF; our photos and memories together in our LDR are on that camera.
