Burglary in Blackheath

Last Wednesday I had a break in at home in Mycenae Road and all my camera equipment was stolen. It is Nikon professional equipment and is my working gear. I was hoping you may be able to spread the news in the hope someone comes across it and also to warn people in the Westcombe Park area that this is happening quite a bit. We have a downstairs flat and access was through a window at the front which is concealed from the road. Through the glaziers and the police I have been informed of two other such break-ins in the last couple of weeks. It is the holiday period and this happened during the day.

I have had police and forensics around but no prints were detected. A theory of a neighbour is that Wescombe Park station is used as a mode of escape as it is so near. I am going to contact Network Rail to see if they can scan their CCTV for the few hours I was gone last Wednesday. I am also in the process of contacting all the local camera shops and Cash Converters with the missing gear and serial numbers.

    Try the second hand ‘shop’ in Lewisham.
    Its on Lee High Road.

    Turn left from the Dirty South pub and walk towards Lewisham. Its on the right just past the speed camera markings.

    I found my portable TV there a few years ago after it had been stolen from my van in Tescos car park!

    Ya can’t miss the shop its full of erm… well stuff without remote controls and boxes etc…

    I just read of your recent burglary and thought you might be interested to hear that we were also burgled quite recently and live just down the road from you… We subsequently found the stolen laptop for sale on gumtree and set up a meeting between police and the seller – a 17-year old boy from plumstead turned up with the laptop and was swooped, arrested and let out on bail. It may be a good idea to contact the police to see if any of your stuff was recovered at the boy’s house, which was raided immediately afterwards. Good luck!
