Couple Seeks Return Of Stolen Cameras With Baby Videos

October 10, 2017

An Escambia County couple is hoping a thief will have a change of heart and return cameras — or at least memory cardsĀ  — that contain irreplaceable family videos.

Sunday night or early Monday morning, someone stole both a Canon EOS Rebel T3i camera with a “stock” Canon 18-55mm lens (example above) and a Canon Vixia video camera from a vehicle on Chicago Avenue, not far from Pine Forest High School. Both cameras were in the same bag as their chargers.

The video camera contained videos taken since the birth of the couple’s youngest child.

“While we would love to catch whoever did it, we really would just love to have our memory cards back. We can replace the cameras, but we can’t replace my baby’s first Christmas, first birthday party, first steps,” the woman said. “I think the guy has no heart… but if he does, he can even just leave them on our sidewalk or porch if he wants.”

Anyone with additional information can also call the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 436-9620.

    Things like this is why everyone should back up their memory cards. I am notorious for not doing it, either, but we have to remember that not only do we have to be concerned with loss or theft, but also those cards can become corrupt. If we back them up on discs on “in the clouds,” they will be there for us after unfortunate incidents like this. I hope the thief will at least return the card to the owners.

    I hope you have better luck getting your cameras back than my daughter did. My daughter and her husband took some photos at Pensacola Beach one afternoon. They stopped in to eat at McGuire’s Pub. My daughter’s purse was drapped over the chair arm and the camera inside a bag was in her purse. While in there they viewed some of the photos. When they got home, the camera was no longer there. Someone sitting near them performed a pick-pocket and stole the camera. They noticed the waiter acting strange and whispering with 2 guys at the table next to them. They called McGuire’s and spoke with the waiter and of course he knew nothing.They checked all the pawn shops in the area and turned up nothing. All their wedding photos, honeymoon and current photos were gone. It seems like a life time of memories are no longer with you. People don’t have hearts, they are all about the price they can get out something. I’m praying you get your cameras back. Have a Blessed Day.

    So sad……I pray that God Almighty will touch this person and make them aware of your pleas……our God is a very big God and this is possible through Him….
