CalDigit, which makes RAID storage hardware and software for video editors and other content creators, suffered a burglary over the weekend of Feb. 20 to its corporate offices and warehouse in Placentia, Calif.
CalDigit HDPro The company advises consumers to be wary of any CalDigit product that is not sold though a CalDigit Certified Dealer. These products have not been assembled and tested by CalDigit and come with no guarantee or warranty.
Also, according to a statement from the company: CalDigit never sells any product without hard drives. Any unpopulated CalDigit solutions are likely stolen. The stolen CalDigit products will be missing several stickers which should make the units easy to identify, so look for a CalDigit label and serial number on each hard drive and cardboard box and on the bottom or side of the unit.
CalDigit has the serial numbers of the stolen units and hard drives on file, please contact CalDigit directly if you have any questionable products that you would like to check.
"In what seems to be much like the plot from an action film, a hole was cut into the wall of the CalDigit warehouse, where the burglars were able to remove merchandise," the company said.
The police investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should contact the Placentia Police Department at (714) 993-8164 or CalDigit directly at (714) 557-6668. CalDigit is offering a reward for any information leading to the conviction of those involved.
