Stolen Equipment

Update – Friday 31st Aug

Northamptonshire Police spotted a suspicious van parked in a lay-by about 15 miles from the scene of the theft on Sunday 26th. Thankfully the van contained all the stolen equipment, apart from a Leatherman and torch. All the equipment has, today, been returned to us.

A massive thank you to Northamptonshire Police, and our Insurance brokers Ryan Waring and Richard from Vista Insurance for their work and support.

Also a massive thank you to all the friends of the company that have shared the post across the various platforms, which hopefully had some impact on the thieves plans for the stolen equipment. We really appreciated it!

Stolen Equipment

We have suffered a vehicle break in between approximately 22:00 on the 23rd and 08:00 on the 24th August at the Thrapston Travelodge, Kettering. Our van was targeted in the car park of the Travelodge, with the thieves stealing a quantity of equipment, mostly marked as Production AV, but some sub hired from Central Presentations.

Thankfully the equipment is spares or pool kit, so the event has started without any issues.

All the equipment serial numbers are logged on our database, so if you come across any suspect items, we can verify the serial numbers.
