Some years ago, two men tried to sell dozens of D2x bodies to B&H as used gear - some $200K worth of cameras. Suspecting something shady, B&H staff notified NY police. It turned out that the would-be sellers had stolen the cameras from city traffic installations: They were "red light" cameras.

I guess that those were not the thieves that people are talking about when they say things like "the thieves today are so smart ...". Reminds me of a story I heard on a local radio station while visiting Durham, NC back in the '90s. Someone had broken into a church one Friday night, taking some audio or office equipment. The following Friday night, someone broke into the church again. The third Friday night, police were hiding in the church, and guess who they caught?
