Last week we reported that wedding photographer Martin Gregorian from Butterfly Photography had $6,000 worth of camera equipment stolen in broad daylight during a wedding ceremony in Vancouver, Canada.
The act was caught on video by the wedding videographer and was critical in helping the Vancouver Police identify the culprit. As a result, it only took one week for the police to arrest 50-year-old suspect Ahmed Baladie. Unfortunately, the following 3 stolen lenses and Pelican case are still missing:
- Canon 400mm F/2.8L USM II Super Telephoto Lens (Editor’s note: That lens is over $11,000, so we suspect that actual missing lens is the Canon 400mm f/5.6L, which values at $1,339)
- Canon 50mm f/1.2 L Lens
- Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro Lens
- Pelican Protector Case 1514
