Default AerialMediaPros broken into

Hey guys, I am copying this from a post Patrick at Aerial Media Pros posted on RCGroups. Please keep a lookout for this stuff.

Aerial Media Pros BROKEN INTO Please keep eyes and ears open for RTF XM8 Skyjib & RED
Hey guys,

It saddens me to have to write this. But I am hoping somone will see or hear something in the next days to follow. Last night between 8PM and 8am In COsta Mesa CA, someone broke into our shop, and pretty much wiped us out. The perp came through a window, and cut them selves pretty bad. So chances are they are bandaged up pretty good right now. The worst part of all of this is that we had just cxl our insurance last month, because they would not cover us for Aerial work. What a big mistake. To all the other business owners out there, Please learn from my mistake and make sure you install CAMERAS, and have adaquate insurance.

The items stolen are not your average copters, and can easily be made out. They are some of our custom builds. They also got our RED camera with lens's. If anyone sees or hears anything about the following items, Please call us at 888-557-6791, or call the Costa Mesa Police department directly at 714-754-5252 CASE# 13-229

OK, here is the stuff we have found missing so far.

Ouch... You know, some / most of that DJI equipment has GPS systems built in. I wonder if, when turned on, they could track the units to the location of the criminal(s)? They may try and test or tinker with some of the merchandise... Just a thought, not sure.

Hope they've got insurance!

A Red Scarlet... ouch! I'm sure they have quite a bit in the helicopters, too. Freaking thieves. I hope they catch them.

Sounds like some up and coming dreamers either in country or out of United States. Or an arrangement was made with an existing APer.
Almost sounds like an order was filled.

I am so sorry for your loss. Their evil will eat them like a cancer.

Anyway to get the blood left by perp. DNA tested?

He might already be in a DNA database from other crimes.
