Urgent appeal – Brownhills camera theft – can you help?


Brownhills rozzer PC Simon Bytheway – successfully feeling collars to keep us safe. But can we find the nicked camera? Image from the PCs twitter profile.

Listen up folks, Brownhills Community Association and Brownhills Police need our help…

On Monday, 30th September 2013 a walk-in theft occurred at Brownhills Activity centre in Brownhills – that’s the old Annexe, or Central Boys School, the home of Brownhills Community Association.

A suspect was arrested and has been charged in connection with the incident.

Sadly, though, the photographic kit lifted – which is used for the community education and photography courses – has not yet been recovered. That’s where we come in.

The camera is a Cannon EOS 7D camera with the following lenses:  EF-S 18-135mm 75-300mm and a 150mm Sigma lens. They were in a large canvas bag.


A Cannon EOS 7D Camera – nice bit of kit. Know anyone who’s suddenly got one that seems a bit shady? Image from Ken Rockwell.

PC Simon Bytheway, of the local neighbourhood policing team is understandably keen to trace the stolen equipment. He said:

This is specialist equipment. If you’re offered it, or know anyone that’s suddenly acquired and expensive looking camera without good reason, please do contact Walsall Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Please, lets see if we can get the Community Association it’s kit back. My thanks to the police, particularly PC Bytheway and PC Stanley for doing a great job.
