VMI Burglary

VMI had a ‘Mission Impossible’ – style break in over the weekend by burglars making their way over the railway lines and subsequently entering their building through the roof.  Happily, the systems activated the alarm and the police and the loss was relatively small and many big expensive cameras and lenses were not stolen.

This is not yet a comprehensive list but please be aware in case you are offered any of these for sale.  It is highly likely that some DSLR lenses were also stolen but this is not yet confirmed.
