That's terrible. My sympathies! I'm positive at least some of the items will be recovered, if not all. I would advise watching your local craigslist for the next few weeks, and see if one of the pieces comes up, hopefully. CL's become the easiest place for thieves to sell their loot. Especially if they are stupid, as most thieves are. Also a big flea-market nearby might produce a surprise.
Good luck.

That's really terrible to hear, Jose.

Any luck getting some of your pieces back?

Unfortunately not yet. Either the thief is still out there and is sitting on them, the pawn shops have not yet posted them, or they are in a warehouse.

Then there are the worse scenarios......

Thank you for asking Jens. No word, and now not anticipating any.

Angry STOLEN??PURCHASED FROM ITALIAN SELLER AND NEVER RECEIVED

Please keep your eyes open for this Dharia purchased from an Italian seller and never received. Money not returned and contact ZERO. Suspect that seller has decided to keep both the money and the item!!
Please advise me if you see this for sale.
Thanks
Stu

Please note I have merged the three stolen weapons threads previously "stuck" at the top of the forum.

I do believe it makes sense to stick threads like this so casual readers may see them even years later as one never knows when a lost or stolen item will resurface at auction or similar.

However, let's not have multiple stuck threads. Instead, please use this thread to post any such notices. It will remain stuck.

I dont know if this will help anyone, but I resently read in a Danish net paper that they have started to use 'DNA marking'. They seem to be using this special kind of marking in Sweden and in the UK, and the ones with stickers that they had 'DNA marked' on doors and windows hardly had a break ins, compared to the ones not having the sticker, there the break ins were the same rate as usual.
You contact a security firm delivering this kind of service, and you get/buy a spray, with which you spray your valuables. A contract seems to last about five years. The first year it costs about $100 and the following years about $50.
The 'DNA spray' can only be seen in UW light, and it is unique to the spray bottle used. So if the police find stolen goods at three different addresses, they know that they belong to the same theft. The police then contacts the security firm, and is told who the owner is.
If this is used by the pilice and the customs it could stop a number of thefts.

That is really sad to hear. Looks like your using a Sony DSC-W150 for most your images (as apposed to say an on-phone-camera). So they likely didn't pull your location from your images meta data. Which would mean that the thief was not made aware of your collection or your location through sharing the images online. That narrows your field to a local thief. Given the narrow spectrum of items stolen. It's also likely that they knew what they were coming there for. And if that is so, you were cased before you were burgled. Have you had any recent contracted work done in your home (a plumbing job, electrical work, even outdoor stuff like landscaping)?

It breaks my heart to see such an exquisite keris moro stolen from you Battara.
My deepest sympathy and hope you can recover it one day somehow!

Thank you so much folks.

Actually at that time there were a number of homes broken into in the area. Yes they stumbled onto my collection. Fortunately they did not get the most valuable items. Still, I am quite saddened and angry about this loss. Nothing has reappeared so far. I believe they caught the criminal now, but my stuff and others are still missing. At least now we have an alarm (for any would be thieving lurkers out there).

Again thank you folks. You are very kind.........

So sorry! Those items should be hard to fence without attracting the attention of forum members here.
As a police officer I will pass along the pictures and descriptions to our art theft investigators here in Los Angeles. You never where unique items can turn up.

Oops! I didn't realize this was an old, old post. If the items are still unrecovered, I will pass the information along anyway.

Hello Jose,

What a nightmare !!

I feel so sorry for you and, as a collector, I can imagine how desperate you are.

Please let me add words from others as we all feel the same : I too will keep a vigilant eye for your items on Ebay and other antique weapon websites.

Best Wishes,

Patrick
