Yep, a few years ago I met up with a Craigslist seller who had all of Tonya's gear. I had photos, I was texting back n forth with Tonya during my meetup with this meth-head... but when I notified the Tacoma police department they simply shrugged and said move along, we're too busy, can't help you.
They told me the story of a ratty looking old lady pushing a grocery cart with all her belongings through the park, with a clearly stolen flatscreen. Not a thing they can do about it without proof.

your stuff - give us the serial numbers".
"oh - you didn't write down serial numbers - we can't help".

Bottom Line:
Write your name on your gear.
Register the gear with manufacturers website.
Save the receipts. Write down all serial number.
Take pictures of the gear including the serial numbers. Take pictures of receipts.

Vancouver PD was very helpful recovering my board (which had no S/N, but i had a picture or two and it had my phone # and name on it) from a fisherman who put it up for sale on CL (tried contacting him, but once i told him he has my board and i would like to meet up and offer him some reward he hung up).
