Attackers in London stole five guns worth more than 120 thousand dollars, used on the set of a series of films about British intelligence agent James bond, according to the London police.
According to police, the robbery occurred on the evening of Monday, March 23. Police officers responded to a call about a burglary in a residential building, but the attackers managed to escape from the scene before the police arrived.
“The suspects, who (witnesses) described as three white men who spoke with an Eastern European accent, entered the house from the back entrance and stole five units of decommissioned firearms used in the James bond films, allegedly worth more than 100 thousand pounds (122 thousand dollars),” the police statement said.
According to police, Beretta, Smith & Wesson, Magnum and Walther handguns were stolen, which were used in the films Die Another Day (2002), A View to To A Kill (1985) and Live And Let Die (1973).
“The stolen firearms are very recognizable and made to order for specific James bond films. They will almost certainly be recognized if someone puts them up for sale. Many of these guns are unique. For example, the stolen Magnum is the only chrome one in the world,” said police detective Paul Ridley.
Police have urged anyone with any information about the stolen items to help the investigation.
