James Bond got tricked – Five James Bond Guns stolen in a burglary
No, even though it’s a real-life incident where James Bond Guns are stolen, they are not stolen from James Bond. A burglary in a house in London resulted in as many as five classic James Bond Guns stolen. Not many details of the burglary are out, and neither of the thieves, but the details of the Guns are made public by police.
James Bond Guns worth 100k looted
The stolen Guns, as a collection, are reported to be of an estimated worth of more than 100k. The burglary took place in the Enfield, North London, on 23rd March. Though the Metropolitan police were informed about the burglary on time by the neighbours, the thieves flew from the scene before police arrived. As per the description by neighbours, the intruders were three white men, and they drove a silver vehicle.
The stolen Guns were extremely rare guns from Bond Movies
Aside from their monitory worth, the James Bond guns that are stolen were extremely rare and were used as props in Bond movies.
The collection of James Bond Guns consisted of Beretta Cheetah and Tomcat pistols from 2002’s Die Another Day; Walther PPK handgun from 1985’s A View to a Kill; A Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum from 1973’s Live and Let Die, and a Llama .22-calibre handgun featured in Die Another Day.
“The firearms are very distinctive and bespoke to particular Bond movies. They will almost certainly be recognised by the public and to anyone offering them for sale” said Insp Paul while talking about the possibility of the stolen James Bond Guns being sold by the intruders.
Though the collection consisted of 60 more such rare prop Guns and other collectable items like posters and cloths from Bond movies, only the five Guns were reported stolen. The collector, Mr. Reynolds, described them as “probably the finest collection of its type under one roof.”
The Inspector has also urged the public and such collective items or gun buyers to report if they have any lead on these stolen Guns. He said, “I would urge any members of the public that may have witnessed the burglars arriving and leaving, or who know where the firearms are or may have been offered these stolen items for sale, to come forward.”
