NZ10K of Bush Telly gear has been stolen by a former member of the crew from Christchurch New Zealand.

Bush Telly gear is often loaned to members of the crew who return it and they have often loaned their own gear to Bush Telly so it has been of mutual benefit.

Alexander "Sasha" Shamilov was loaned this gear by me late last year. I only found out a few weeks ago that he is now living in UK and the gear has disappeared.

http://www.sashashamilov.com

Formerly living in Christchurch New Zealand

Now living in Clitheroe, Lancashire, United Kingdom

He had "borrowed"

1 Sennheisser MKH70 shotgun microphone
1 Rycote windsock system
1 Vinten 3441-3 Vision 8 pan and tilt head
1 Vinten 3770-3 ENG Aluminium 2-stage Pozi-Loc Tripod Legs
1 Tripod kit bag, head manual, maintenance kit, snow shoes, tripod floor spreader and plates.

More details at http://blog.bushtell....elly-gear.html

Any help getting the gear back much appreciated. He may have also stolen gear from other people as well.

Cheers

I assume you've contacted the authorities here? What recourse is there in a situation like this?

Hi Phil

Well I'm in New Zealand and never had gear stolen before, so I'm learning as I go. I guess I have to email the Clitheroe Police somehow. Be worth letting the local photo club know so nobody else gets taken in.

Do you have any suggestions on the best way to proceed in UK?

Thanks Mike

Not a clue. Perhaps the British embassy in New Zealand would be able to advise you, although I should imagine they'll just suggest some things to try as opposed to doing much themselves.

Thanks Phil - will try the embassy

In the meantime I have emailed the Clitheroe Police with full details.

That'll be the High Commission, what with NZ being in the Commonwealth.

Ah, so that's what a protocol droid does!

But yes. Thanks for inserting that factoid into my cerebral rolodex of trivia.

Good news

The Clitheroe Police have confirmed that Mr Shamilov has admitted that all the missing gear is in the shipping container that is on its way to the UK.

Making progress.
