Richie Hawtin’s gear stolen from hotel

Richie Hawtin is offering a 2,500 reward for the safe return of the equipment used in his live show, after it was stolen from his Parisian hotel room last weekend.

The Canadian producer wrote this message on his Facebook wall following a gig in the French capital: “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 If found/returned I will NOT prosecute any one involved as I would just like to have my equipment returned.”

The Facebook note has already gleaned more than 200 comments of condolence and support, but as yet the thief or thieves are yet to come forward.
