A CCTV security system is a vital tool providing images that could help identify someone intent on causing harm to your enterprise.

CCTV footage has been released of a gang who stole £150,000 from 42 Carphone Warehouse stores across London and the surrounding area over six months.

The males aged 15-22 stormed the high street mobile phone shops in broad daylight, intimidating shoppers and staff who were caught in the middle, while they violently grabbed stock from displays before escaping,

The hooded gang caused £50,000 worth of damage between July and December last year and would typically operate in a large group, travelling together to the shop they intended to steal from. Eight of the gang were sentenced at Southwark Crown Court in March.

A spokesperson from AlertSystems said:

“Attacks such as these are extremely worrying and hard to defend against as the gangs are so large, but thankfully CCTV managed to capture evidence of the attacks and the gang has met the prosecution they deserve. A CCTV security system is a vital tool providing images that could help identify someone intent on causing harm to your enterprise. Successful prosecutions also add to the deterrent value of CCTV systems.

Security systems are vital to protect the safety and profit of your premises and ensuring criminals are brought to justice.”
