Police have released CCTV footage following the theft of an Apple laptop from a Plymouth arts hub.
The CCTV footage at Plymouth Arts Centre, Looe Street, shows an unidentified man enter a restricted part of the building at around 2pm on September 12.
Several minutes later he reappears on camera with a bag under his arm and leaves the building with a Macbook Air under his jacket belonging to curator Lucy Rollins, the Plymouth Herald reports.
“My Macbook Air was in our upper gallery which is closed to the public,” Lucy said.
“We’ve got footage of the guy walking into the gallery and then walking out with his arm down the side of his jacket.
“The laptop is a few years old and it is ironic because I was only having the conversation about how good the laptop has been in terms of longevity.
“All he did was walk up the staircase and the person on the front desk didn’t stop him even though they should have. The footage shows him walking into the gallery with other staff members walking around. Apparently he comes in fairly regularly.”
The laptop has several identifying features – two stickers, one a pink flower, the other a bird, and a bent edge.
Devon and Cornwall Police have confirmed the incident is under investigation and no arrests had been made.
Anyone with information which could help in the matter is advised to contact the police on 101 quoting crime reference number CR/078410/17.
