Detectives are trying to track down two burglars who stole £24,000 worth of new Henny Penny commercial frying equipment from a restaurant in Romford, London.
The pair were captured on video as they made off with the catering equipment while wearing hi-vis vests and hard hats.
CCTV from within the shop alerted the owner on his mobile phone to a break in. Using an app on his phone, the owner was able to record two men searching the premises and remove the equipment. Both of the Henny Penny fryers were still in their original packaging.
One of the suspects is described as a well-built white man, aged in his 20s. He was wearing a white protective hat, a sleeveless yellow high visibility jacket labelled ‘Lakehouse’, a dark top over a light blue shirt, dark tracksuit trousers with white lines down the sides and dark shoes.
The other is described as a well-built white man, also aged in his 20s. He was wearing a white protective hat, a sleeveless yellow high visibility jacket, a dark top, grey trousers and brown boots.
Police issued still footage of the suspects from the CCTV today (above), but the incident took place on Friday 6 May. They were alerted to the burglary at 19:35 and said it happened earlier that evening.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who may recognise the men or who witnessed the burglary.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 020 3276 1069 or via 101 quoting reference number 216967 (suspect 1) or 216966 (suspect 2) or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
