Sorry to hear that. Hope you will be able to resolve that quickly... My 2 major incidents took 4 and 10 months respectively...

Well, update in my story. Just last week (4 months later), the police caught the crack heads that stole my stuff and of course, all was gone. Their story is that they sold back what they could to a local pawn shop that sold it back to "someone" who paid cash with no ID or address to be looked for.
Pawn shops here are among the scummiest kind, the law asks for them to keep the stuff they receive for 30 days in the backstore for the police to investigate on higher value items. After 30 days, if the police has not matched any serial numbers from the database with theirs, the pawn shop becomes the legal owner of the items and can safely resell them... Of course, scum-bags see a complete sled coming in with remotes and video senders and don't ask where it's from. They hide it well for a month and try to get rid of it ASAP... And that's what they did.
At first, when the robbery took place, they left essential items like the arm so I knew the thieves had no idea what they stole and so I assumed the equipment was thrown into a garbage bin or into the river but I know now the stuff is still available. Since I have this info I kindly ASK EVERYONE TO BE CAREFUL WHEN OFFERED ANYTHING STEADICAM RELATED FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS...
Sachtler sled, Canatrans sender, Complete Scorpio focus system, Fast forward video (FFV) recorder, Sony tuner, Sony TV 9" on a bracket, cables for all aks , Modular 51 bags... If it's to good to be true, in pristine condition and full of little mods everyone loves....Just remember there is no "christmas special" on this stuff.
Every one of my suppliers like David Hable (scorpio) and Emery (Canatrans) told me the stuff takes about a year or two to come back in their hands for repairs since there is not a lot of options when it fails...
And to follow up on my insurance claim, I will have a good story when all is completed ( I have not received the money yet so I can't comment right now ...)
