Art of the steal: Lelo US warehouse raided – twice
Posted: June 5, 2017
Lelo’s US warehouse was robbed of around 30,000 Hex condoms plus a quantity of sex toys at the end of May. The firm’s Las Vegas warehouse closed early on May 26th for the US Memorial Day long-weekend and at approximately 7.45pm (PDT), security footage showed two thieves entering through a back gate and making off with two large shipping boxes of Lelo Hex, each holding 15,120 individually wrapped condoms. Moments later, one of the thieves returned to take more 36-packs before making their getaway.
The thieves returned the following day, ramming a rental car through the loading dock gate, also captured on CCTV. The video of the second raid shows a man running through the factory inspecting the goods, before throwing a large box of 33 Lelo Hugo Vibrating Butt Plugs through the car’s broken rear window. He then returns and does the same for a box of 48 Lelo Luna Beads and another box of goods that has yet to be identified.
Lelo’s US president, Pavle Sedic said: “At this stage, we’ll be happy if the thieves just use the condoms themselves. Two raids in less than 24 hours is pretty shocking, but everyone knows it’s close to impossible to get additional security during Memorial Day weekend and the thieves obviously realised that. They seemed to have a very clear idea on what they were looking for.”
