Another Gear Rental Shop Broken Into: The LensPal Burgled in Florida

Comment

We seem to be hearing more and more stories of camera gear offices being broken into and plundered. Late last year it was $2 million in gear from three businesses in California. Last month it was $586,000 from LensProToGo. Now the latest is the Florida-based gear rental shop, The LensPal.

The business revealed on Facebook yesterday that burglars had broken in the night before and run off with “a good amount of equipment.”

After taking inventory of what was lost, The LensPal posted a list of stolen gear and the serial numbers online:

“It’s amazing what people can fit into 2 bags. #marypoppins,” the company writes. “The cops are putting all the serial numbers into the national database for pawn shops.”

If you live in Florida and suddenly notice a large number of relatively cheap cameras or lenses being sold through site’s like Craigslist, you might want to see if any of these serial numbers turn up — you could help bring some camera gear burglars to justice.
