Thousands of Sex Toys Stolen at Expo
Police are investigating what is believed to be the biggest sex toy heist in history after brazen thieves helped themselves to around £45,000 ($85,000 NZD) worth of sex toys at an erotic trade show in Germany.
The sex toy heist happened at an erotic trade fair in Berlin this week. Fun Toys London had a stand at the annual Venus-Berlin exhibition, and staff were packing up when the manufacturers boxes filled with thousands of popular adult toys were stolen.
Stunned Fun Toys representative Jack Romanski said: "When we arrived to load products into the truck, we saw that all of the Fun Toy products had been stolen. Only the brochures, bags and two boxes with testers were left."
To top things off, he said that while the company's representative was speaking to police, opportunist thieves took another four boxes! The cheek of it...
He said: "This is the largest recorded theft of sex toys in history."
"When we arrived to load products into the truck, we saw... that all of the Fun Toy products, worth over $60,000 (£45,000) had been stolen. Only the brochures, bags and two boxes with testers were left."
The British company took to Facebook to reveal the "devastating" loss.
In a lengthy post, Fun Toys said the heist was "the largest recorded theft of sex toys in history". The company also accused the organisers of Venus-Berlin of being unhelpful. They said they are still trying to get its hands on CCTV footage to solve the riddle of who stole the sex toys.
Representatives at Fun Toys London had just finished debuting their erotic toy line at a sex toy exhibition in Berlin when they stepped away from the boxes they were getting ready to load into a truck. When the Fun Toys staff came back, all except for brochures, bags, and a few boxes of testers were gone.
He said what was surprising was that they didn't experience the small theft they expected to see.
"What is amusing is that not a single tester went missing during the days of the exhibition," Romanski said.
The fact that this is the largest recorded heist is no small feat, since sex toy thefts seem to happen relatively often. Earlier this year, thieves stole $10,000 worth of sex toys and 30,000 condoms from a Lelo warehouse in Las Vegas, a couple shoplifted jewelry and sex toys from a mall in 2016 after getting engaged, and in 2013 $500 worth of sex toys were taken from the trunk of a woman's car.
Fun Toys London hasn't yet had a break in the case, but is asking that anyone who notices their toys being sold anywhere other than their distributors contact the police.
