Thieves take off with $250,000 worth of Toshiba machines

Three people drove several vehicles into the rear entrance of an industrial warehouse and loaded about 100 Toshiba computers and laptops into the rear of the vehicles

NSW police are investigating the theft of about $250,000 worth of Toshiba computers from a warehouse located in Homebush, Sydney.

According to a police report, at about 2.50am on March 17, three people drove several vehicles into the rear entrance of Toshiba's industrial warehouse on Parramatta Rd, Homebush.

They forced their way inside and loaded about 100 Toshiba computers and laptops from a pallet into the rear of the vehicles.

All three vehicles - a maroon-coloured van, a black Mercedes sedan and a dark-coloured Subaru wagon - then took off from the area.

About an hour later, the empty van was found abandoned and burnt-out on Deakin Street, Silverwater.

It has been seized for forensic examination.

Investigators are in the process of viewing CCTV taken from the warehouse in the hope it might provide valuable leads.

In the meantime, anybody who is offered a Toshiba laptop for sale and doubts the offer, should contact investigators.

In addition, anybody who knows the identity of the three men involved should contact Flemington Police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Toshiba did not respond to calls for comment at the time of publication.
