What can I do to recover items from potential thief

A week ago, my car window was smashed and I lost all my weightlifting gear (my fault; made a ton of excuses as to why no one would break into my car to get a bunch of beaten up equipment). Ever since losing my stuff, I've been checking craigslist and other sites with no luck until today.
I found a weightlifting belt that's the same colour and most likely the same size as mine. I know that this can just be another identical belt for sale but on the post, the seller says that s(he) doesn't know the size and then goes on to list the website where the belt was ordered from.

Again, this can just be another belt for sale because I couldn't find any of my other equipment on sale but not knowing the size and then linking where the belt was ordered from is very suspicious IMO.
My only idea unless I find my other gear for sale(Maybe I can get police involved then) is to write a thoughtful letter and pray it's the thief I'm sending it to, then hope that he can show me some empathy for the ~1 grand I lost for window repair + items as a student

Any advice on what I could/should do or how I could try and bait out some more information?

Damn man that sucks, about a year ago my car got broken into at my work's Christmas party and my backpack got stolen so I've at least done something kinda like this before. The first thing you should do is file a police report if you haven't already. My city let you do it online, yours might too. After that, check up on pawn shops regularly and let them know what was stolen from you, they'll keep an eye out. Other than that, keep doing what you're doing with the craigslist thing. Let the cops know if you find anything that matches. Good luck man.

Edit: If you live in a major city it might be worth making a post in your city's subreddit.

my neighbor said he was gonna shoot my cat, so i told him if he did that i'd chop off his and his girlfriends heads and leave them on their porch for someone to find. he didn't wanna shoot my cat after that. it may work.

The chance of that being yours is so low. A lot of weighlifters wear belts, even people at my job. Not worth going through all the trouble when the chance of getting it back are too low. Also if this guys crazy enough to shatter your window then he's probably gonna have a weapon on him.
