Wow, that sucks!
If I were you, I would print a flyer & hand it out at every pawn shop within 30 miles, and I'd keep checking Craigslist ads everywhere around your area too, and obviously, ebay.
Really sad...

that really stinks. i have travelled to vancouver several times in a touring band and, though the city is incredible and beautiful, every person we met along the way told us that theft of music gear from a car/van is extremely common. we were warned many times to the point where we were so paranoid that we slept in our van.

it makes me really angry when people steal gear used for another person's livelihood. i sincerely hope that you do get it returned.

That sucks, the number of places you can sell an Arri SR2 are very limited, you might get lucky and find someone trying to resell it.

Good news.  As mentioned above, it is difficult to sell Super 16 gear so, when our local boys in blue executed a search warrant at a home suspected of being a repository for stolen goods, the Arri and all the accessories were there  :)

Congrats on getting your gear back!
