West Yorkshire Police recently arrested a gang in Leeds that stole luxury cars. The police reportedly found them thanks to Instagram, as they posted a selfie with a stolen car to brag about the theft. Furthermore, they even shared a video showing them driving around in the stolen car. Clever, right?
Dear photography community. I am writing this post to warn you. Warn you about two things!
We live in a modern age with crazy technology – our cameras are proof of that. And so is the technology the common thief uses. On a travel to Lithuania I parked the rented car (with full insurance coverage) and went for lunch with my girlfriend, her mom and two friends. With my camera safely locked in the trunk.
Returning to the car I didn’t notice anything. We didn’t notice anything until an hour later, where we parked and I needed my camera. Opening the trunk I wondered where I put the backpack. Coming to my senses, I realized my shoulderbag with the camera, my backpack, my girlfriends backpack and one of my friends backpack wasn’t there.
