Series of Photography Rental Company Heists in the Netherlands and Germany

Ralf in Germany has informed me that there have been a rash of thefts from photography gear rental companies in the Netherlands and Germany.
 
"The 10th case happened here in Karlsruhe one week ago." PPL (Pro Photo Logistik - www.ppl.de, ppl@ppl.de) was the latest victim.
 
Here is the gear list from the PPL heist along with serial numbers. It is not likely that the theives plan to use this gear themselves, so please be vigilant in checking any used gear you are considering the purchase of.
