Bodyshop Suppliers Warned of Break Ins

Three Ontario companies supplying bodyshops have been hit with break-ins in recent weeks where thieves have been interested in consumables rather than expensive equipment or paint.
On Tuesday, thieves broke into a bodyshop supply firm in Ontario’s Niagara Region yesterday, but didn’t steal the expensive inventory.
Leaving behind the spray guns, measuring equipment and special paints, the thieves grabbed tack clothes and boxes of sandpaper and left, although not before causing expensive damage to the front door and the doorframe.
This is the not the first time in recent weeks that police have responded to a body shop supplier break-in.
Two other suppliers have been hit with theft, again of sandpaper, clothes and tape.
One collision repair shop in Niagara was also hit and similar items stolen.
John Norris of the Collision Industry Action Group warns shops to be cautious when approached by someone with an offer of sandpaper, or supplies that is too good to be true.
