OMG! So sorry to hear man. Sounds like you already talked to insurance, but if you can AVOID saying you used it professionally. Our insurance took that was "Not our problem then."

Since we have installed am Alarm in the truck with real time tracking. AudioVox connection Pro. Not sure iof we 'll keep it (We originally asked for Lojack) but this thing is instantaneous to locate the truck as long as they don't know to pull it from the ODBII port.

Best of luck finding your gear and vehicle. MAKE SURE you blast it on Facebook and social media! That's how ours was found.

Well I officially signed my car over to the insurance last week. If they find it before the end of the month I'll get it back, otherwise they pay 11.5k. Which isn't an entirely unrealistic amount I guess but not near what I paid to buy and maintain it of course. I still really hope they find it (preferably with gear) but at least I know what I have to deal with now. All the officials I've spoken to tell me to forget about finding it.

I'm considering a LoJack thing too but right now it's an extra expense I'm reluctant to make. The police and the insurance guy also said one of those old fashioned mechanical steering wheel or pedal locks helps. Just enough to slow them down or move to the next vehicle.

AMAZINGLY, MY VAN WAS FOUND!
Right now it's at the police compound. I went by there but wasn't allowed to open the vehicle to check for my stuff because the CSI dudes weren't done yet and unfortunately had already left for the lab. Monday they will probably be done and I check if my equipment is there and if the car is alright inside. Just walking around it, it looked perfectly fine, just had the license plates removed since it was found with stolen ones.

I don't want to be too happy yet because I don't know if my stuff is in there. But this morning when the forensics guy called me I asked about contents and he said there was "quite some equipment in the back"... Here's to hoping it's not a bunch of construction gear or whatever.

Oh and most amazing of all, it was found in Amsterdam North! It didn't even leave the city! Idiots. Everyone I spoke to said it would be long gone to Poland or Czech Republic or somewhere far away.

EDIT:
Since my only way of dealing with this tragedy was going into turbo mode, I now have a complete duplicate setup apart from the Kronos (which I can't afford anymore since I have to pay back the insurance), so if anyone wants to buy a brand new K&M 18953 stand with all attachments or an Ultimate Apex 48 Pro Plus, both with bag, or a Ventilator pedal with footswitch, or a Hammond XB1... Let me know.
Assuming all my gear is still in there. Thanks for all the support, guys!

Sander,

I've only just got to see this post...what a shock for you!
Real sorry this has happened.

Amazing that they've recovered the van
Fingers crossed all your gear is still there and is OK.

Good Luck and Kind Regards,

OMG Sander! Are you and I living in a parallel universe?

That's great news. Hopefully you'll luck out as I did. I know what you mean about going "turbo mode" I now have Two Kronos boards in my house, though the original will be up for sale in the near future!

Good luck on the final outcome. Smile

Thanks guys, frustratingly my car still hasn't been released. I did get a letter from our version of the DMV that said my car had been stolen and thus suspended, and now that it had been found I needed to sign something to accept liability again before I could reclaim the vehicle. So I wonder if that's why they won't release it. Although I don't understand in that case why they won't at least let me open it and check my gear.

I'll call again on Monday...

Frustrating indeed just wondering why they can't just tell you if, all. The gear was still inside.. After all you are the owner of it? Strange doings there in !amsterdam

The problem was that the car was marked as part of an ongoing investigation in the system and then I'm not allowed to touch it. The forensics expert who originally called me did say that there was "gear" in the back but he had no clue what it all was and if it was complete, which I do understand.

Anyway, after three weeks, two thousand euros in hastily bought replacement gear twelve phone calls and about five heart attacks, today my car was finally released and towed to the garage. I got to open the cargo area and wonder of wonders, everything seems there, down to my Samsonite clothing bag. My cable case had obviously moved around some since it was lying on top of my unprotected JX10 (I never bring it to a gig and don't have a case for it). My organ looked to be in an uncomfortable position in a bag between two heavy things but basically everything is complete.

The car itself wouldn't start and there was a gasoline smell in the driver/passenger cabin, the police thought it might have been involved in an arseny. But hopefully all that is cosmetic or minor and the garage can fix it up well. I couldn't get my stuff out yet since there was no way to transport the bulk of it in the small car I borrowed from my brother, but it's safe at the garage now and I'll get it back soon. Together with a steering wheel lock and a LoJack.

I wish I felt more relieved. I know I should be, and I am, but I'm also only now starting to feel angry and violated that those a-holes put me through this. Hopefully I'll feel better in a few days. I lost only three weeks of time arranging replacement stuff and getting stuff back and sorted, but it feels like I lost another three years from the end of my life.
