Theft of Nikon equipment from Bass & Bligh

In the early hours of this morning, Burglars cut through the security shutter to steal a large quantity of Nikon camera bodies and Lenses from our good friends at Bass & Bligh. For a small independent retailer this type of theft is quite devastating. 

Here is a list of the stolen Nikon equipment and the serial numbers:
