Within 48 hours of thieves leaving The Camera Store in shambles of shattered glass and robbing us of nearly $35,000 of specialty camera equipment, Constable Tony Hogendorp and Constable Paul Teworte from Calgary Police Service have recovered our stolen Hasselblad equipment. Two suspects were taken into custody outside a Calgary mall Monday afternoon, after meeting an officer who answered a Kijiji listing.

Although the Hasselblad equipment was recovered and returned to The Camera Store, our rare Leica M-P 240 Safari camera worth $13,000 was not recovered. Read the full statement
