Sadly, during the early hours of Tuesday 18th November our Salisbury shop was victim of an organised raid in which a crew of thieves smashed their way into the shop and stole tens of thousands of pounds worth of cameras and lenses. This was obviously very distressing for us and has certainly set us back somewhat.
Unfortunately the same crew attacked our Bournemouth store during the night on Saturday 22nd November. Despite heavy security the thieves still managed to gain access to the store and once again stole tens of thousands of pounds worth of cameras and lenses.
These two raids have caused much distress and have had a significant impact on our normal day-to-day business. During the next few days please bear with us as we try to take stock, rebuild and get our business back on track.
The police and insurers are investigating but if you have any information about the raids or hear of camera kits being sold new, boxed and cheap in the local area please get in touch or contact the police.
Many Thanks, The team at Castle Cameras
