A London Warehouse was recently the subject of a warehouse commercial security breach when it was at the centre of a heist on the 29th – 30th January 2017.
According to Scotland Yard, the planned attack resulted in a number of valuable books being stolen, which dated back to 15th & 16th century.
Three thieves were reported to take over 160 publications and the books included works by Galileo, Isaac Newton, Leonardo da Vinci and a 1569 edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy; plus, the most expensive – a 1566 copy of Nicolaus Copernicus’s De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium, worth approximately £215,000.
Rare book dealers who stored their precious works at the warehouse in good faith that their property was protected securely with warehouse commercial security were devastated to hear of the theft, with one dealer losing up to £618,000 worth of material.
In a ‘Mission Impossible’ style attack, the three men in question were said to have bored holes through the roof of the warehouse and then abseiled down a forty-foot rope, avoiding and sensors in the building.
The Metropolitan police have asked anyone with any further information to get in contact.
