    1. Sending the IP address would do no good at all as that would be changed whenever the MacBooks got connected to the Internet again.

    2. Apple will not do anything about stolen property. See this Apple article for more information.


    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Unfortunately the best thing you can do is report it to local law enforcement.
