Details of the incident : Gilbert Conde called to reserve almost $30,000 worth of gear on a Saturday when neither of the Rental managers were working. He sent insurance from insuremyequipment.com along with his ID and credit card copies, the same day. He had Dwight Johnson pick up the rental, and at that time we made a copy of his ID and ran the credit card for a $500 authorization, based off his deductible. They said they needed the equipment asap and got the insurance covered right away. Dwight was trying to rush our employee as she tried to get him to look over the equipment, to "test the gear and look over it at home before the shoot." On the morning he was supposed to return, we realized the insurance was a temporary insurance that expired the night before return. That is when we did research and found out the address on Gilbert's ID was to a mini mall in North Carolina. Dwight's drivers license is from New Jersey, and Gilbert's is from North Carolina, but Gilbert's phone number is from New York. We called Gilbert to let him know we need the equipment back until he has insurance again. Gilbert then hung up the phone on us. About 4 hours later, Gilbert called us to let us know that all of the equipment was stolen from his possession. We filed a police report and have been in contact with his insurance company, who sent us a copy of the second certificate of liability he filed for that same day. We let Gilbert know he needs to make an insurance claim and report the incident to the police as well. We have not been contacted back by him. The insurance company is aware that he tried to get insurance for another rental house in Tempe as well. We called the other company, Broadcast Rentals, and they said Gilbert tried to rent expensive camera equipment as well, but decided against it as a judgment call.
