According to an article on the UTV website, published on Wednesday the 1st of January, 2014, two ‘unique’ paintings by renowned, Belfast born artist Terry Bradley were stolen on Monday the 30th of December, 2013. Monitored alarm systems apparently alerted police to the alleged break in. Once they arrived at the scene however, the burglars had already gone. Police believe that the showroom was forcibly entered and this set off the alarm that alerting them to the break in.
Wayne Lyons, the business director at the premises viewed CCTV security systems footage of the break in and has witnessed the suspected burglar heading directly for the two painting. Each of the Bradley paintings are said to be worth in the region of around £6,000. Police are appealing to anyone who might have been around the Soaks Bathrooms or around the Apollo Road area after 9pm on Monday.
A spokesperson from AlertSystems commented on the burglary by saying ‘more and more businesses are holding items of high value, and there is a small resurgence recently in art theft; first two Damien Hirst paintings in London and now two Terry Bradley paintings in Belfast. Art is a desirable and high worth medium which attracts a lot of attention, the installation of sufficient commercial security is a vital step in protecting a company’s assets.
‘With CCTV security systems installed into the premises at the Soaks Bathrooms, the police have a better chance of identifying the alleged suspect.’
