I just got news from The Light Network that Bentley Meeker was robbed in the early morning of January 13, 2009 – someone stole a bunch of gear and 14′ two box trucks. The trucks were recovered, but the gear was gone. The trucks were parked on 36th Street in Manhattan, and discovered in Queens.
Apparently lots of stuff was taken, including (with serials):
2 @ NEC PX-61XM3A 61″ Plasmas
4 @ Pioneer PDP-504CMX 50″ Plasmas
(SN#DKSS0080067J, DKSS008008UJ, DKSS007991UJ, DKSS007329UJ)
1 @ Sanyo XF-70 Projector
(SN#92852, MFG: G8401400)
1 @ Sanyo 4.6-6.0:1 Lens
(for XF series projector)
36 @ Black Color Kinetics Color Blasts 12 TR
3 @ City Theatrical PDS750-TR
20 @ 72″ LED Color Blazes
(belonging to Creative Stage Lighting)
This sucks. Obviously, if you’ve seen this gear, get ahold of Jon Prokopchak, the shop manager at Bentley Meeker. Call the shop at 212-722-3349, x229 or email Shop@BentleyMeeker.com.
Sorry to hear of this, guys. I hope you find at least some of your stuff.
