Police seek two for C&W network robbery

Routers and software taken

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Hertfordshire Police are searching for two men suspected of involvement in last week's robbery from a network centre in Watford.

Thieves took equipment from a Cable & Wireless network site in Watford forcing FT.com, the Ordnance Survey and Sainsburys.com offline for most of the day.

Herts Police sent us the following: "POLICE are appealing for witnesses and information after Energis telecommunications company was burgled on Thursday July 10.

"It happened at between 12.10am and 2.45am at the business premises on Holly Industrial Park on Ryan Way, Watford. One or more offenders broke into the building and, after a search, they took computer software and routers. They also caused damage to the premises.

"One suspect is described as a white man with short brown hair and aged 20 to 30 years old. He was wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans."

PC Paul Goble said: “It looks as though the offenders were disturbed as some computer towers were left by exit doors. We would strongly appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious at that time to contact us.”

Police would not specify what kind of software was stolen. Anyone with information can call PC Goble on 0845 33 00 222. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

As commodity prices have risen so has the number of thieves looking for copper, lead and other metals. Stealing copper cables is a growing problem for many forces, especially British Transport Police. ®
