We can report that further to the theft by deception of a substantial amount of hire equipment from a prominent West London hire company (and CVP client) earlier this month by someone claiming to represent BBC Worldwide and producing forged BBC purchase orders, 4 men attempting to commit an almost identical crime against CVP have just been arrested at our London offices this afternoon. Early indications are that CCTV images of the thieves from both locations match.

That is superb news, media organisations are increasingly becoming the victims of high value theft’s due to the nature of the equipment that is widly in use and to to the criminals seen as a insurance haven. We also tend to be more nieave to it. Cash in transit thefts are notoriously hard to pull off, yet tarket one media company and in one go you can easily remove three of four times the value of one CIT vehicle, and more so, carry it away under your arm. Well done CVP for making the issue more publicised.
Congratulations CVP. It’s bad enough having to work incredibly hard to make a successful business without someone trying to take it all away in an instant. Glad you got them and I hope courts take a hard stance against these criminals.
