Yes, this is another sad story of a producer who had his gear stolen. This time, Shawn Wasabi had many items stolen after someone broke into Twitter user Czarletterijene’s car by breaking a window. Of the items stolen, his Macbook, Midi Fighter 64, hard drive, and passport were included. Not to mention the emotional distress of having been robbed, the financial loss is immense.

The good news is that over $1500 have been raised by fans to help get Shawn Wasabi back on his feet.

So tips to producers: don’t leave your equipment in a car if you can help it. Even further, don’t leave anything in plain view – it’s an open invitation to thieves.
