Camera gear worth $30K stolen from parked car

Camera gear worth about $30,000 was stolen from a car parked in a resident’s driveway, according to Madison police. The victim told police he doesn’t typically leave the equipment in his car parked at his home in the 1800 block of Sachtjen Street, but he got sidetracked and didn’t take it out. He called police Sunday morning to report the theft.

Police said there were no signs anyone forced their way into the car. A neighbor also reported someone had been in her car and had taken change from the ashtray.

Poor guy, this story made my stomach lurch. I can only imagine that the photographer must be just sick over the theft. Hopefully camera stores and pawn shops (and Craigslist?) people will be careful to follow up on used equipment that comes in. Do you suppose the photog. kept a list of the equipment serial numbers? Do you all? Up until now I hadn't considered how useful the info could be - will be going through my equipment and jotting all that information down for future reference for sure.

All of my gear is Nikon and on their support page is a "My Camera Bag". I enter my gear and the serial number there. It's online and always available. I've never tried to enter non-Nikon gear, so I don't know if it's possible. I think I will also create a spreadsheet and keep it in Dropbox up in the cloud.

Good ideas I will store my serial numbers. Also I have camera insurance.
