MORE than £7,000 worth of camera equipment was stolen during a raid on a Hatfield home.

Police are appealing for information from anyone who has recently been offered photographic equipment for sale “under suspicious circumstances” following burglars breaking into a house in Glebeland.

The thugs entered the house, through a back window, sometime between 5.45pm on Thursday April 5 and 10.30pm on Sunday April 8.

They then searched all the rooms of the property before leaving with a substantial amount of photographic equipment.

Items taken included: a Nikon D100 SLR camera, a 14mm Nikon F28 lens, a 20-35mm F28 Nikon lens, a 35-70mm F28 Nikon lens, a 50-110mm F56 Nikon lens, a Nikon SB-80 DX Speedlight flash gun, a Minolta flash gun , a Low Pro camera case, a Nikon 24-85mm F2.8-4 lens, a Nikon Power Grip MBD-100, a Minolta Flash Light Meter V and case , a Minolta Spot Meter F, a Minolta X700 film SLR camera body and a Minolta 70-210mm lens

Various Nikon camera accessories such as a battery, charger, a remote trigger, battery adapter and various other memory cards, a torch, filters, straps and cleaning equipment were taken too.

DC Mark Cotte, from the Hatfield Local Crime Unit, said the owner is “very keen” to get his property back.

“Much of the equipment is expensive and easily identifiable so I’m keen to speak to anyone who thinks they have seen it or who may have been offered it for sale in the weeks since the break-in,” he added.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference B2/12/1321.
