If they were project cams, the ethics vary depending on your area, I suggest using quicklinks with blue loctite to tie them up.

I would also canvas the neighborhood to see if perhaps anyone saw anything suspicious and  if there were any other break-ins. Depending on your neighborhood, there may be homes with porch cams or other surveillance which may assist as well. Good luck.

Did you seriously believe the OP?

The cams were never yours, you were merely the initial caretaker. And given that after only three days use, you left the cams out in a cold dark car overnight it was time for someone else to become their caretaker. Rest assured your cams will be well taken care of by another.

Thanks, Briggs. You bring up some important points. I don't want my cams taken from me by CPS (Cam Protective Services).  Sometimes, I go in the bar for "just one drink," with my cams locked in the car. I thoughtlessly and neglectfully end up leaving them there for hours. Then when I come back, the cams have sun-induced microfractures. I want to be a better cam-parent.

If you want to be a better cam-parent you need to buy my program. Its a 4 part series that I have on sale for 80% right now. Pm me for more info but dont miss out. Time is ticking.

Don’t be like the cam parent who tried to free his children of rust using lemon juice. That’s a death penalty crime. 

Well BD will help you cover your tracks in most cases. Send them in, tell them what happened(go to manuel, tell him The Wolf sent you) they'll send you brand new cams, and make sure the other ones dont talk. Then you wont have to worry at that point. Youre safe

Sounds great, Briggs, Do I get free Ginsu knives with the purchase? I'm going to load some money into my PayPal account right now. Wait for me.

Similar thing happened to me. Security cameras from the Walgreens across the street caught grainy footage of a pack of babies and dogs breaking into my car. They also ate a sandwich out of my pack.

It’s alright everybody, word is they have a team of detectives on the case.

I wouldn’t hold out much hope for the Credence though.

If not, that rules out my cat as a suspect.
