Court documents revealed the incident took place in April, when police received a call from the owner of the company about the theft.

The owner informed the police that his employees went into work in the morning, only to find the entrance door broken and the contents of the warehouse missing.

Police reached the site and found that the thieves had cut the entrance door using tools used to cut metal.
