Yes, I got that email as well, and was just thinking about it.

Not that I would run into this stuff anyway, but from the vague description, I'm not sure how I'd even know that it was this, if I were offered the material.

I hope it is recovered somehow.

Sounds like someone knew exactly what to take and where to find it. Given the mid-week 4:30 - 6:00pm time of the alleged theft, the store was most likely still open. I can't imagine a dealer would let a walk-in customer he didn't know well be alone with the three most expensive binders of his material.

And txstamp is correct - how would any of us know what to look for since there was no mention of what was taken, beyond the countries of origin?

I received that alert, too. Unfortunately I'm on the other coast so I can't offer any help. I am checking various online forums and reposting the alert if it hasn't appeared yet.

Although I'm only about 18 miles from Walnut Creek, I'd be unlikely to see this stuff, even if I had a better idea of what it was. But I'll keep my eyes and ears open.
