Red Epic Stolen - $100,000.00 Reward

Here is one reason not to be rich. Mark L. Pederson, CTO of OffHollywood, had his RED EPIC stolen from his French chalet while he and his family were sleeping. Oops. EPIC #0006, was the first RED EPIC to be delivered to a paying customer. Mark payed the princely sum of $58,000.00 for the privilege of being the first guy with the new RED.

Here's a list of all that was stolen.

Same thing happened to me, except it was an apartment in Van Nuys, and the camera was a Fisher Price PXL-2000:)
