Slam City Skates warehouse break in

Never a pleasure having to report any type of burglaries when it comes to skate shops but another one happened over the weekend to Slam City Skates‘ warehouse. Here’s a statement from Slam staff this morning. If you are offered any cheap skate stuff over the coming weeks be sure to inform the shop.

“This was the shocking scenario we were greeted by over the weekend. We were targeted by some criminals whose sniffing around, we had already been alerted to. They ram-raided our shutter with a car and followed up with a van. Fortunately they bungled their work on the shutter and left in a panic. The bad news is that the three culprits still had time to take off with some boxes of stock. We were glad to find that our internal CCTV cameras have images of two of the three male faces. We are confident that this will lead to these morons being apprehended. However due to this huge inconvenience there may be some disruption to mail orders and our Outlet Store will remain closed until further notice.”
