Good idea getting the police report.

Better idea keeping photo backups, I did that the hard way with a zerox before ubiquitous digital cameras.

For the aspiring pilots out there: This has happened to several people I know, and I helped a couple rebuild books from school records. PITA. Thieves love flight bags and logbooks for some reason. If you absolutely must leave your book in the car, put it in the trunk or under the seat. Better yet to not leave it anywhere but the school or home... in a fireproof safe.

Today it will save you hassle. Back in the day it could easily cost you a job because before inter-webs and digital everything employers had to be careful about falsified credentials... a pilot without all of his original endorsements and training records was harder to adjudicate as authentic.
