Ink and Toner Cartridges Worth 200k Stolen From Milton Keynes
Thieves have stolen ink and toner cartridges valued at close to £200,000 from an office supply store in Milton Keynes. Thames Valley Police are appealing for witnesses of the incident, which happened last Friday night (December 10th), AboutMyArea.co.uk reported.
It happened between 18:00 GMT and 19:45 GMT at a site in Darin Court, in the Crownhill area of the town. The last member of staff to leave for the weekend recalls seeing three men parked up in a large box van, the news provider said.
Most of the cartridges taken were Hewlett-Packard products.
As well as appealing for anyone who may have seen the burglary, police also want to speak to anyone who may have been offered "unusually cheap" cartridges or toners over the last few days, the news provider said.
Recently, a US man, Marque Gumbs, was accused of stealing nearly $4 million (£2.5 million) in toner cartridges from his employer. The 32-year-old was an administrative worker at Memorial-Sloan Kettering Hospital when he ordered toner cartridges through the hospital, selling them on in order to fund a luxury lifestyle.
