Our flying club received notice of this theft.

"I have just been informed that Len Mounts workshop has been broken into and 3 of his models stolen, they are his own design turbine powered Tomahawk (yellow) scale scratch built Turbine powered Red Bull BO105 and a JR electric 500 the first two are very distinctive and are one of a kind so should be difficult to dispose of but if any members hear of anything like these on offer please contact the police immediately. Thank You. "

*** On Saturday 18 February 2017 an officer carrying out enquiries into the incident, found one of the model helicopters, the JR500, discarded in a bush in an alleyway close to the property.

During the incident, not only were the three helicopters, which are worth thousands, stolen, but damage had also been caused to the garage door.

Investigating officer Sergeant Alan Willett of Kent Police said: ‘I’m pleased that an officer has been able to recover one of these helicopters, but two of the replicas are still outstanding so I would encourage everyone to keep an eye out and especially check their gardens and alleyways in case the suspect has discarded the other two which were stolen’.

‘The victim, who has been building and flying such models since the 1970s, made these replicas from scratch so we would very much like to reunite him with all of the stolen items.’

Anyone with information can call Kent Police appeals line on 01474 366149 quoting reference XY/7374/17. Alternatively call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. ***

This is the only one in the US as of today. If another one other than this one is seen it will be Len's. Can't believe someone would do this to him.

If Facebook is to be believed then it would appear that Len has his models back, which is great news.

Probably the same scum low life that stole mine as Len lives behind me across the road.. they never prosecuted them cos they were too young despite knowing who they were and video evidence I provided, even though their faces were covered the police knew who stole mine cos they were friends of my neighbour whose son actually phones his mates to tell them I had left shed open and was working on my turbines. The lad responsible lived 4 doors down from Len.

Anyway

Had heard he got them all back, with the loss of his dear wife Olive a couple of weeks ago he really is taking a hit at the moment..

Glad he got them back though.

All The Best
