Richie Plastikman Hawtin offered a no questions asked EUR2,500 reward this week after thieves stole his laptop and ipads while he was staying in Paris.
“To all my French fans, friends and supporters. I need your help!” the Canadian minimal techno star pleaded in a posting on his label site M-nus.com.
“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),” he wrote.
“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 EUR reward for any information that leads to the return of the equipment. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If found/returned I will NOT prosecute any one involved as I would just like to have my equipment returned,” he added.
Describing themselves as being ‘in one of the trendiest areas’ in Paris . . . very much appreciated by the trendy crowd’ in one press release, the 4 star Hotel Costes attracted a less euphoric review on travel portal Europeforvisitors.com who labelled it a ‘super fashionable designer hotel in eclectic French Empire brothel style”.
“This is a hotel for the thick-skinned fashion follower or the thin-skinned celebrity who doesn’t mind a guest pecking order and a staff with attitude,” the site suggested. “Very busy at all times of year, the balcony rooms are best, and the courtyard dining is attractive.”
