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.

£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.

Bespoke hidden cameras cut loss from theft

Hidden camera surveillance techniques can cut your losses

Our investigators have conducted hidden camera operations for numerous clients and try to avoid some methods which in our opinion have become somewhat clichéd.

In one instance while investigating large scale cash thefts we were challenged with introducing a hidden camera into an area which was extremely sterile, with little opportunity to hide a camera.  The only place that would provide a suitable view was in wooden furniture within the cash store.

A camera was embedded into similar piece of pine wood with the lens peering through a knot in the wood.  The wood was then added to an appropriate place in the structure allowing the thief to be observed from within a managers office.

On a similar installation we caught a thief who stole in excess of £34,000 in two visits.

We also installed a hidden camera to catch a sneaky thief stealing cash from colleagues.  The camera was installed on a Sunday evening awaiting the staff arriving at 9am the following Monday morning.

In what is probably a record, the thief struck and was detected at 9.35am.

The client dealt with the matter swiftly and found the thief to be a long established and trusted employee who would have been a  long way down any list of suspects.

Investigations of franchise fraud

Hiring a private investigator to protect your business

We were asked by a client to obtain evidence against a franchisee who the franchisor suspected was acting dishonestly.

On this particular occasion we obtained hidden footage of the franchisee conducting branded franchise business on a number of sites which he had not declared to the rights holder i.e the franchisor and therefore denying of the franchisor (our client) a considerable sum of money.

Computer forensics identifies thief

Private investigators trace IP thief

Our investigators were approached by a software company concerned about the theft of its intellectual property.  Information had appeared in the public domain and this information could only have come from the company’s private network.

Using a combination of computer forensics and surveillance we were able to trace the individual who had hacked into the the software company’s computer network.  The individual concerned was a former director of the company and was the subject of a criminal prosecution.
