    While it is not usually our position to offer rewards for our customers stolen property, this one is an exception. EPIC #00006 is truly a historic camera. It is the very 1st EPIC shipped to one of our customers and the way it was taken irritates me no end.

    We are now offering $100,000 for the safe return of EPIC #00006 and the rest of the system including the media with Mark's files... and the arrest and conviction of those that broke into Mark's chalet in France. We will ONLY pay this amount if there is an arrest and conviction of the parties as we are not interested to be ransomed by thieves.

    If you have any information regarding the theft, the location of Mark's property or any details that might solve this case, please contact anyone at RED and they will make sure I hear about it.

    Posting information on REDUSER is NOT a good idea for several reasons, including your own safety. Please do NOT post any information you have obtained. Any post we see on REDUSER regarding information on this case will be deleted.

    This is a tight community. We need your help. Keep your eyes and ears open for any news, tips or details about an EPIC floating around. An EPIC is a hard thing to circulate since there is only one in the world.

    Please contact anyone at RED if you hear of anything.

    Of course Mark is heartbroken. So are we.

    Like people on this forum need the $100K for motivation in finding Mark's Epic. But I'm sure now people will be a little more on this.

    Email the local paper and radio station in Miribel with this reward Jim. It's probably been stolen by a local gang that targets tourists or drugged-up opportunist. Either way, $100,000 should smoke them out...

    Well done Jim. Mark, someone, get this out on the (theft area) local news TV outlets. Create a buzz.
