Stolen K-30

This is just a rant. My home was broken into on October 30th. Someone stole all of my camera equipment. White K-30, the kit lens, a 50-200mm WR and a 50mm 1.2. It was all in a green Promaster L450 messenger bag. The lenses were in a white leather Audio Technica headphone bag. I also had a AA battery adapter with Sanyo Eneloops, rainbow sparkle. Plus my Kodak Z990 was in the bag for macro shots. I literally have no camera. The only thing i have left is the USB cable for the K-30. I have never cried so hard. The person that did this also beat my dog. His eye is swollen shut and he had a bloody nose. I just want to say one thing to the person that did this, You are an awful person. Sorry, i know they will never see this but it makes me feel better. I just cannot believe how much i loved, truly loved my K-30. I will miss you.

Sorry about your loss and more sorry about your poor dog. Look at the bright side, your dog at least didn't run away or you would be worry to death about your dog now instead of your camera. When my home was broken into a few years ago, the 2 puppies I was puppy-sitting for a friend were gone cause the fu_kers left my front door open when they left.
I worried sick to my stomach. Fortunately, some extremely nice dog owners in the neighborhood saw them and took them to the closest animal shelter and we got them back a few days later.
Wish they catch those A-holes and recover your lost items soon.

BTW, time to think about installing some kind of home security system and camera system to your home.
Also, if you have home insurance, you can file claims for what they have taken.

That just stinks. I hate that kind of thing... just feels empty and hopeless. Just know that person will get what's coming to them sooner or later. Hope you're able to recover and hope your dog gets better soon.

Take care,

Sorry to hear about this, I hope your dog is OK soon.
Post serial numbers and also tell what city you live in so our locals can keep an eye on craigslist and pawnshops for you.

I am so sorry to hear about what happened to you. It is so upsetting that someone would not only break into your home and steal your possessions but also harm your dog. I hope the thieves are caught.
