Computer case stolen

Hello folks,

I was doing my shopping at Coop and forgot a computer case at the checkout, once I came back it was gone (no surprise). I spoke with the staff and they said they can't do anything about it. No cameras etc.

What do you guys advice I do? Should I report it to the feds? Luckily I didn't have a laptop inside, but a ton of papers which are sensitive..FFS

Cheers

Re: Computer case stolen

Go around near the shop and look inside bins, probably around 1KM max from shop.
Also look it possible location where it could be dumped- (behind advert signs, trees, behind electrical units, etc...).

Re: Computer case stolen

Report it to the police anyway. You may well need a copy of the police report to be able to get a new passport etc.
You could also try the city lost and found office if there is one.

Re: Computer case stolen

Guess that's all a part of shopping in Hell.
In Zürich you'd probably have been more responsible.

Re: Computer case stolen

I had a wallet stolen in a Coop in Winterthur. It was stupidly sitting under my shopping. I reported it to the police and about 2 weeks later, my wallet was returned minus the cash. (About 20chf).

So yes, report it to the local police. In fact, the police have a sort of lost and found - you might find it there. Sometimes people are honest.

Re: Computer case stolen

Did you check with the customer services desk to make sure no one handed it in?

Or afraid there are sensitive items in there that could appear in the newspapers? Because this thread may be closed but will be still visible?

I'm sorry, only God can decide when to close or delete a thread as seeing you're in Hell, you unfortunately do not qualify for this level of service.

If your passport was in there you must report it to the police.
To get replacement you need a police-report.
