Saffron worth £50k stolen from Ilford warehouse

Two suspects broke into the warehouse last week

Police have launched an investigation after £50,000 of saffron was stolen from a warehouse in Ilford.

Ten kilograms of the expensive spice was taken from an independent business a week ago.

CCTV footage of the incident, which happened between 9.50-11.50pm on Thursday, 11 June, shows two suspects force their way into the warehouse.

The duo ignored other stock in the premises and take only the saffron.

Detectives from North East CID are leading the investigation and are yet to make any arrests.

The investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Laura Mills, said: “This is someone’s livelihood and this theft will, of course, impact their business. Saffron is worth more than gold in weight and an extremely large amount was taken from this business.

“I’m releasing this CCTV because I need information. Someone knows something about this burglary and I am appealing to them to contact our team. If you have any information, no matter how insignificant you think it might be, please contact us.

“The victims are angry and upset that someone has done this to them. It’s important that those who are responsible are caught and the spice is returned to its rightful owners.” 

Anyone with information should call 101 or tweet @MetCC. To remain anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
