New evidence uncovered related to high-profile home invasion

Boothroyds organised a trailer to advertise a reward after a home invasionBoothroyds is working towards the recovery of family jewellery after a high-profile home invasion in Bothwell, Scotland.

The burglary took place on a Sunday afternoon while the family were on holiday.  On their return the family discovered high value jewellery and watches had been stolen.  But more importantly, items of sentimental value had also been taken.

Boothroyds initiated a two prong approach.  Firstly they hired an advertising trailer to raise awareness of the break-in and the accompanying reward for information leading to the recovery of the stolen items.  The trailer was placed strategically throughout the local and wider community.

The Boothroyd detectives, who are ex-police detectives, also found witnesses that the current police investigation had overlooked as well uncovering further evidence from the crime scene for submission for forensic examination.

Missing persons where our investigators are helping bring closure to unresolved open enquiries

Boothroyd Associates are helping with ongoing enquiries into the disappearance three years ago of a young man from the Kirkcaldy area of Scotland.

Allan Bryant was reported missing three years ago when he didn’t return home from a night out.  Boothroyd detectives are working with his family to try and bring some closure to this sensitive case.  The detectives have spent time with the family, listening to their concerns and following up in areas where the family believe the police investigation was weak.  Boothroyds have uncovered new evidence which has been passed to local police who are continuing to action the case as an open missing person enquiry.

£10K of stolen jewellery recovered

Private investigation leads to recovery of stolen jewellery

A client contacted us because her wedding jewellery had been stolen.  The jewellery was valued at in excess of £10,000 but the sentimental value to our client was far greater because the jewellery had been passed down through the family generations.

Our client had a suspicion regarding how her jewellery had been stolen but was unable to take any action, hence she called us.  Working on the basis of her suspicion and employing a combination of hidden cameras and in-person surveillance we were able to recover the stolen jewels.

My cheating spouse confirmed

Do you suspect your spouse of cheating?

As private investigators we’re asked to conduct matrimonial investigations on an almost daily basis.

We understand you’re facing a painful and distressing situation.  Our experienced team handle all requests with sensitivity and discretion.

The client below made the very difficult decision to contact us after reading a suspicious text on her husband’s phone.  In her own words and reprinted with permission, our client provided the following testimonial.

“After the painful discovery of a text on my Husband’s phone and realising the possibility that my Husband was conducting a secret affair, I considered engaging the services of an Investigation Company. The daunting prospect of this was overwhelming, as the outcome may not be what I wanted to hear. Coupled with the anxiety of who do you contact and how, and if you do, it also exposes your cherished private life to a stranger. However I could not ignore what I had discovered and made the decision to engage a company to assist me in discovering the truth.

The truth was not good, however the professional, sensitive and expedient manner in which Boothroyds conducted their enquiries, the informative presentation of their results both verbally and in writing made the whole process as painless as it could be.

My complicated circumstances required the use of their services over a lengthy period of time. Boothroyds during this process were engaged by my solicitors for legal reasons, during the course of this lengthy procedure they were never at any time detected, which is a testament once again to their knowledge of their field. Probably the longest undetected surveillance operation conducted on behalf of an individual.

It is without hesitation that I commend Boothroyds for their professionalism, integrity and humanity during the most upsetting and stressful time. Furthermore their compassion, care and empathic manner is something I will never forget.”

I found my birth mother

Private investigation service to locate your missing family members

As private investigators we’re often contacted by clients searching for birth parents or brothers and sisters they have lost contact with.

Investigation of missing relatives can take us across the UK and in this case our client, based in Glasgow, was reunited with her birth mother living in the south of England.

In this instance we were contacted by a lady who on previous occasions had tried unsuccessfully to locate her birth mother.

In her own words and reprinted with permission the client says “I had been searching for my birth mother for years to no avail when I contacted Boothroyds. From the first phone call they handled the case with the upmost professionalism and discretion. Within a week of trawling through family records, they had located my mother and I was able to contact her by telephone. Within a week I had gained a mother, one full brother and three half sisters thanks to Robert and Bob.

Not only were they delighted to have done their job, but were genuinely happy for me personally, so much so, that I have given them the almost impossible task of tracing my father’s family. I say almost, because knowing these guys I will probably have gained 5 more family members by next weekend!!!!!!!”

My cheating partner’s phone gave him away

A private detective can confirm your suspicions of a cheating partner

We were contacted by a female client in Glasgow who had become suspicious of her fiancé because of the way he was acting with his mobile phone.  With her permission, we have reprinted the client’s own words below.

“My fiance was acting strange towards me and being very protective of his mobile phone.  He was constantly texting and I suspected that he was seeing a work colleague.  I called Boothroyds and received a sympathetic ear.  They gave me sound advice on how to find out if he was cheating on me.”

As private detectives we’re familiar with the stress, worry and heart ache that comes when you suspect your partner of cheating.  Our service is discreet, confidential and sympathetic.

In this case we outlined a number of options available to the client and within a few days of surveillance we confirmed the client’s suspicions.   The client was devastated but later commented, “The detective was very sensitive and supportive.  I have had to move on but I am grateful for the help and support I received.”

Has your partner’s behaviour changed recently?  Not all changes in behaviour are related to cheating and in one case we discovered that our client’s spouse was in fact displaying the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Surveillance brings fly tipping blight to an end

Private investigator surveillance techniques assist local councils

As private investigators we are often hired by local councils to monitor and provide evidence of anti-social behaviour.  In this instance we were asked to provide surveillance of a site experiencing fly tipping on an industrial scale.

The site in question was secured by gates enclosing the yard where the fly tipping was taking place.  We have a particular expertise in surveillance investigations and to catch the fly tippers we devised an innovative weatherproof hidden camera system deployed in a pile of rubble, affectionately nicknamed ‘Boothroyd’s bricks’.

The hidden camera footage identified a huge lorry arrive at 5 o’clock in the morning, open the gates and dump its contents – a huge pile of rubbish.  The lorry had a foreign number plate but a west of Scotland telephone number featured on its cab door.  It turned out this was an innovative way for a skip hire company to off-load the rubbish it had been paid to collect.

As a result of the evidence our surveillance provided the company was sued for the £100,000 clean up bill and received the undivided attention of the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency.

Surveillance by hidden camera cuts theft

Professional surveillance techniques are shown to cut losses

We were approached by a corporate client whose gaming machine business was suffering unexplained cash shortages.

The client commented “Being a cash business we noted shortages in our gaming machines and suspected the service engineer of stealing money when he visited.  We asked Boothroyds for help and they amazingly managed to hide a camera in the machine.”

As private investigators we have particular expertise in the field of covert surveillance  and in this case we were able to hide a camera within a gaming machine.

Within in a short period of time the culprit was caught on camera and the problem was solved.  Our client is no longer losing money as a result of theft from his gaming machines.
