Det Con Matthew Kent, investigating the incident, said: “These are very specialised pieces of equipment and are only of use to those in the industry.
“I am keen to speak to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area or anyone who has been offered items such as this for sale.”

The UK film industry NEEDS a strong well resourced police force to give investors confidence to film here. This is no time to cut police numbers by 20% in the next few months.
You have to wonder if the thinning of police numbers during The Olympic 100 days of police being assigned to East and Central London has emboldened the burglars of the film equipment.
Major film stars are at Pinewood Studios most days of the year. Johnny Depp, Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Bereniece Marlohe, Naomi Harris, and many others have been there in the last months. We need a strong well resourced police and we need to oppose police cuts of 20%.
Please pray for the police in your local area. Please oppose the cuts to police numbers.
Please pray for the police, please pray crime will fall, please lobby MPs, please let David Cameron know that police cuts are not acceptable.
Please pray for the police
The Avengers is a great movie, will now beat £1.5 billion at the box office, but they will not be there in real life. Nor will The ASA or if people try to rob you in the street, steal your car, break into your home. The police will be there if we devote public taxes to their upkeep.
Public expenditure must now be cut in the UK and in many areas it should be BUT there is one absolute exception.
Cuts of 20% of UK frontline police is massive and will affect people all over the UK – although the Westminster village will still probably get an increase not decrease in police resources.
Save The British Film Industry does not oppose all public spending cuts, indeed we encourage cuts in the film and arts quangos and their croney bureaucracies (which to repeat shore up corrupt croneyism and limit access of most people in the UK to enter the film industry) and we only approve of public spending (especially ring fenced Lottery Money) on physical infrastructure in film making (sound stages, sets, essential equipment) in every region of the UK . The film industry and most arts -if the physical infrastructure is there- will generate and magnetise inward investment and private patronage either seeking profit or kudos/glory.
However, vital public services should be fully financed by the public purse. The police are top of the list. Their budget and manpower should be increased in 2012 and not reduced by 20%.
Please support this cause. The police are a special case.
it is the media battle which will be decisive in pressurising a bunch of inept politicians to do the right thing.
Police budgets and police numbers should be increased and not decreased.
Police keep people safe. The only people who want police cuts are criminals.
A frightened society will become cruel and poor.We want a well staffed, high morale police force.
So please pray for and support the police today. Lobby MPs, write letters, get on radio phone ins, phone up local and national AND international newspapers and TV companies. Get the US press interested. Get the French and German press. Get RTV News interested. This Government hates to be shamed in international media because they see the government jobs as part of their social life. They hate to be ridiculed and embarassed at parties. The Government can back down on police cuts with a big concerted push.
Please plead the Divine Protection of The Blood of Lord Jesus Christ over your local police, your family and home, and theirs. please pray the Government leaders and ministers show wisdom and steward their immense resources wisely.
Further give thanks to God for the superb police force the UK has been given.
Next please please please pray for the peace and prosperity of Jerusalem and Israel. Please pray for the protection of Jerusalem and Israel. This nation faces a nuclear bomb being aimed at it. It has got used to levels of daily and nightly bombing which no other nation could tolerate for so very long. Please pray for Jerusalem and Israel as the neighbours all make more and more genocidal threats.
Truly The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (renamed Israel) deserves praise. It would be great if people would praise Him everytime they see or hear anything about The Olympics and especially if they see the torch. Please pray the police numbers are adequate across the UK during the London Olympics unprecedented call on every regional police force to send them their manpower.
Psalm 122 verse 6: Please Pray for the Peace and Prosperity of Jerusalem.
