Richie Hawtin's Gear Jacked in France
- Words: Patric Fallon
Yesterday, on Richie Hawtin's Facebook profile, the DJ/producer announced that he'd been the victim of theft last Friday night in Paris. While staying at Hotel Costes during his Plastikman tour, someone broke into his room and made off with a whole load of expensive hardware necessary for his live performances. Read the full story in Hawtin's own words below.
To all my French fans, friends and supporters. I need your help!
On Friday night someone broke into my hotel room at Hotel Costes in Paris and stole my iPod and 2 x Plastikman Live iPads (serial #GB01723UZ38 and #GB0129CAZ3A) and my Plastikman Live show Apple Macbook Pro 17" laptop (serial #C02CK0GXDC7C).
I am asking everyone to keep their ears and eyes open for any information about these very important and personal items. I'm offering a 2500 € reward for any information that leads to the return of the equipment.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If found/returned I will NOT prosecute any one involved as I would just like to have my equipment returned.
Thank you, Rich.
