Window Dressing Attracts Carlton Ram-Raiders
by: NJM Group Marketing on
Two thieves used a storm for cover while they ram-raided a clothing store in Carlton over the weekend.
CCTV vision shows a Mazda sedan reversing through the Elgin Street glass shopfront then realigning to the curb while the second burglar runs inside to remove the cash register and steal a bag of clothes.
Motorists are seen driving past seemingly unaware that a robbery is taking place.
The ease in which these thieves gained entry to the premises and the short amount of time it took for them to complete it raises alarms for neighbouring shop owners who rely on glass shopfronts and foot traffic to entice wayfarers inside.
Australian Bollards provides glass shopfront protection to Melbourne businesses and Australia-wide. By installing storefront bollards, peak foot traffic is still able to enter shops unobstructed during the day, while after-hours window shoppers can still view window dressings without the business owner risking ram-raids and burglaries.
