I received the following as a comment on the Chiriqui Watch Post. It should have just been entered in the Chiriqui Watch Site. I will enter it. I decided I would also post it as a normal post to get the word out incase some one is propositioned to buy the camera. I am assuming that this was yesterday (March 30, 2012).
just been robbed of my money papers and camera and what i will miss most 3 memorysticks one I think was 4 gig , one of 12 gig and one realy big 32 gig bite one full of all the pictures I took the last 2 and a half months [ finca dracula , killing of a pig at a friends house , pictures of Panama city ,and some from the vet clinic in Volcan some files marked Marijke — camera can be replaced — if somebody sees a camera in a black bag being offered or finds memorysticks just let me know , I ll ask serial nrs to my husband as all the details of the camera back home in France — last pictures taken in Volcan on the road , just roadsigns … interior of a house with a lady standing in front …. 3 pictures of a local little boy in the panaderia in Volcan and some pictures in a bar in Paso Ancho by what I rekkon were very unexperienced young boys , almost certain not indigenous but panamanian … called the police who didnt show up , took a taxi to volcan to report , but only one man in the office who said they were sending somebody down tomorrow —oh well , got a few knocks on the head …. tried to kick one in his balls , bit nr 2 and tried to hurt nr 3 by trying to twist his fingers badly I didnt succeed unfortunately , would have loved to have broken some fingers …
