Thieves Steal $600,000 of Camera Gear from LensProToGo

Over the past weekend, thieves stole some 300 items of camera equipment from the photography rental folks at LensProToGo.com. As you can see from the picture below, there is always a limit to how safe you can keep your gear against a determined thief!

LensProToGo’s storage facility after the robbery

LensProToGo is asking people to be on the look for their stolen gear, particularly people around the Concord, MA area. They’ve published the entire list of stolen items and serial numbers. Throughout the ordeal, they’ve moved quickly to source alternative rentals for customers and maintained an upbeat presence in social media.

Remember, if a deal seems too good to be true–it probably is!

While we at Snapsort hope that you and your gear are together forever, the sad reality is everyone is at risk of theft. So what can you do?

1. Protect yourself by registering your serial numbers. The handy LensTag app lets you publicly record your ownership and serial numbers.

2. Refuse to buy stolen gear. If a deal’s too good to be true, it probably is. Ask for proof of ownership when buying, and consider checking against public databases of stolen gear.
