Avoid theft in the future by hiding a smaller safe with nothing inside inside the safe.
Their hardwork will be all for nothing. They won’t do that again…

Fed up

One word for these people (Scum)

Do they not keep a record of safe movement? Like isn’t that standard practise to record everything going in and out of the safe?


Are you saying it should have CCTV? or Sat-Nav???
It could be a Hybrid and have boath…

Are you actually that dumb? Safe movement = stuff going in and out of the safe. Record = a log of also stuff going in and out, and yes it’s standard practise to have cctv covering a safe.

Dear o Dear How damn wrong is this! from what I have read indicates to me that the safe contained personal belongings and that what makes this so wrong on all fronts!

I do hope they catch the culprits and set an example but sadly the example will be a suspended sentence!
Bring back the birch!!! they wont do this type of thing again would they!


How would they know where the safe is? Rings alarm bells to me. I am not being funny or any think and yes it’s very low thing to do, but unless you are shown or know where the safe is joe blogs that walks in there anit going to see it or know where it is. All so safes should be bolted down.

Wouldn’t be too difficult to find, usually 9/10 it’s either found in a cash office or managers office.
