Money stolen

Post by pandaanda »

Today I visited three sites and all of them had all the money removed by someone posing as an operator with a big bunch of keys fitting all my sweet and pringle towers , I have also found out another operator in the same area has had the same happen to them in a number of sites , I'm dreading how many more sites I will discover the same in the coming days , I have informed the police and we have the culprit at two of the sites on cctv , I don't know what we can do about this but please be aware and tell all venues not to let anyone but you near your machines. Has this happened to anyone else on here or is it just in my area ie Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Fair play to whoever identified him lol. Should make all commercial premises with public interaction install minimum 760p cctv , would solve so many more problems and its ridiculously cheap now we just bought a 4 camera system complete for sub £70

I & a few other opertors, have been a victim of moped theft in London a few years ago, got cctv and a name. No arrests were ever made. They got bolder, moved up market, now you have the epidemic you hear of today.
