Sawston computer crooks caught on camera

Unsuspecting thieves got caught on camera while raiding a computer shop near Cambridge.

Equipment worth up to £30,000 was stolen from the Mac Upgrades store on Babraham Road, Sawston, on Saturday.

The offenders cut through aluminium sheeting and breeze blocks to get in after initially attempting to break in through the roof.

Gavin Nicholson, owner of the shop, said: "It makes you feel dirty. Someone's broken into my shop and taken my stuff."

Mr Nicholson said the cost to repair the building would stretch to tens of thousands of pounds.

He said no customer data was compromised in the theft.

Police are investigating.
