I was robbed

Two days ago, my El Centro apartment was robbed during the hours of 10:45 and 11:30 AM, while I was at the dentist. They had to have already scoped out my place and knew when I left my apartment (creepy to think I am being watched), most likely previous workers, who figured out how they could get back in during broad daylight when the businesses below could see them enter and leave. They also had a copy of the key to my door. I lost an entire pack full of about $10,000 worth of Canon cameras, lenses, and photography equipment, besides other valuables. If anyone tries to sell you Canon Cameras (7D, 5D, G9,) or any expensive Canon lenses, please contact me or the police who have my equipment on file.

I am not hopeful I will see my gear again, but it never hurts to try whatever it takes to recover what is rightfully mine. Also, never think it can't happen to you because your place is so secure. I thought the same thing and it did. Warning: Don't leave your home unattended when workers are there, and be watchful at who is eyeing your place and things and who has access to keys to your place. These are not workers I knew and hired - but ones sent in by my landlords. Also, I'm not looking for anyone's rant or opinion about my circumstance - I just want to warn others to be careful and pay attention.
