1st JULY 2010

Fantastic news …… Police catch robber/thief/low-life If you witnessed the gentleman being taken away in hand-cuffs during viewing for the last sale, he was innocent of all charges.  However, he had given a lift the sale before to Mr N Birnie who (it is alleged!) nicked one of our lots, a Churchill signed letter.  Mr Birnie, who starred in one of our CCTV clips, was duly visited and found to have the stolen item with him.
