Sorry to hear about the theft of your things.
The improvement in the cameras on smart-phones has driven the price of digital cameras down. When my last camera was stolen, I bought the latest version of the same camera on eBay. It cost me £40 second hand and does excellent macro work. With good lighting and composition, I'm amazed how well the photos come out.
It's a Ricoh CX5. Unless you're aiming to spend more money, I recommend it.
