On Monday 10th June. 2019 at 1430 Pro Centre received a visit from a well prepared and knowledgeable thief who made off with over £10,000 of kit.
The thieves used another company’s details – Gripvan (who are not at all involved).
1) On Friday they called ahead and identified themselves as Joe from Gripvan and in a self-assured manner booked 2x 1DX mkII, 2x 70-200mm, 2x 50mm 1.2 – offering a current GripVan PO number as confirmation.
2) On Monday a driver arrived in a what we now know to be an older and since replaced style of Gripvan T-Shirt quoting the job number, presenting a PDA with collection information detailing the kit and GripVan’s address and then patiently waited for the kit be brought out. He was calm, collected and did nothing to arouse suspicion.
3) He then left on foot, CCTV loses them about 30 meters from the front door.
The items stolen were:
Canon 1DX MKII – #063012000498
Canon 1DX MKII – #1530160000095
Canon 70-200 MKIII – #6800003218
