Theft Alert ~ Camera Gear Stolen!

Earlier today, a friend's car got broken into & all his photo gear was stolen ~ his car was parked in a church compound! *shit happens anywhere these days*
List of stolen canon/canon-compatible gears include: a
70-200mm L lens, a Tokina fish-eye lens, a Sigma macro lens, 50mm prime lens and a 430 Speedlite
*a staggering loss indeed! ~ i share your pain, bro... *

So to my fellow friends & readers, especially avid shutter-bugs ~ please be wary should you come across some dude trying to sell off the used items listed above, offering cheap deals that sounds suspiciously too good to be true. Please help to spread the word too; whoever the culprit is, i hope his/her next shot taken will be his/her own mugshot!
This is one unfortunate incident ~ a reminder to us that shit can happen anytime anywhere; we can't do much to avoid these situations except to be more vigilant & act sensible ~ never ever leave valuables in your car unattended, even if only for a while.
