Thread: Stolen Gear

  1. #1

    Stolen Gear

    Guys,

    Had a big break in to my dive centre last night and had pretty much everything stolen, nearly £50k in gear taken in one go, a huge loss for me but thankfully insured.

    Ok serial numbers are being dug out, but the gear has some very specific items that should hopefully flag up

    Starting with the Inspirations they only took the cases as the electronics are at AP, so they only took the cases with first stages and lungs / front loop, they left the cylinders and canistors behind!

    The Megs were 2 used units with one having oil filled hand sets and the other didn't have the moisture pads in the bottom. One with the oil filled hand sets had back plate, harness and wing attached with US4 first stages and 2 litre cylinders with bottom mounted valves. The 2nd used unit was canistor / lungs / loop only and both had Kent tooling brackets attached to the cansitors

    Unit 3 was a COPIS unit with no brackets attached

    The scooters would be hardest to trace as they have no serial numbers and are pretty difficult to spot. The used N19 was missing the throttle so that will be very hard to use!! The N37 was boxed up ready for dispatch and the used 18 had badly corrroded clips on it. The new 18 didn't stand out really, so not sure what more I can add. They also took a UV 26 conversion kit and a shit load of spares for the Scooters

    I expect all the regs taken will be impossible to trace, but I have all the numbers of the brand new Poseiodon regs so will post them ASAP, there was about 15 brand new Jetsreams / Cyclons and Extremes

    The Apecs and Scubapro regs I don't have the serial numbers for to hand, but have a way of finding them out, there was 6 x Apecs stage regs (tx40's with 90cm hoses) and 8 x Mk 25 back gas sets, all configured DIR style-ee

    They also took 14 brand new dumpy 3 litre steel cylinders with handed valves, a Sea and Sea D8000 camera with wide angle lens, underwater comms kit with 3 ear pieces, 2 x Dive rite 10 watt HID torches, 3 salvo HID torches, 1 Haskel gas booster pump, 1 x 21 watt HID torch, 2 x Vandagraph helium analysers, 2 x VPM colour VR3's, 15 Halycon stage kits and around £4000 worth of CCR spare parts

    Plus on top of all that they took all my personal kit, which is what I have found hardest to deal with, but that's how it is right now

    cheers everyone, please keep your eyes peeled for any of the above kit

    Hope you get the stuff back and/or the insurance company are OK.

    Keep bumping this up into "todays posts" guys - if lots of people see it there's a better chance of catching the thieving low-life scum!
