$1 million of technology stolen in multi-day robbery

Well-planned robbery in NSW nets large haul, police continue to investigate

More than $1 million worth of electronics were stolen in a brazen multi-day robbery from a Sydney warehouse, last week.

According to NSW Police, five men wearing balaclavas and gloves cut a hole into the fence of a Britton St warehouse in Smithfield at 5:20pm on July 17.

“About 12.20am that night, five men returned to the location with an old model white Hino Pantech truck and entered the premise,” a NSW Police statement said.

Police allege a group then returned for a third time at 7:20pm on July 18 to use a forklift to load the goods into the truck, which left the premises at 11pm.

“Numerous digital cameras, digital projectors, coffee machines and flat screen televisions were stolen,” the statement said. “Police are looking for the white Hino truck used in the incident and believe it has a broken rear indicator light.”

Police would not reveal the warehouse owner's name or further details on the stolen property.

NSW Police said forensic investigators continue to operate at the scene and ask any members of the public with information to contact Merrylands detectives via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
