THREE men have been caught on camera carrying away an expensive sound desk from Croydon Conference Centre. The thieves were unwittingly let into the building in Surrey Street at 3.30pm last Saturday afternoon (April 13). They made straight for the auditorium and then to the sound desk, wrapping it in what looks like a coat, before walking out with their loot under one of the burglar's arms. The conference centre had been closed but an upstairs room was being used for a children's party. Manager Jo Chesney said: "We ask anyone using the building to escort people in and out but unfortunately on this occasion it didn't happen. "One of the parents involved in the party left to go to the shop. These boys must have been waiting outside so she held the door open for them like you would for anyone. "It was obvious they had been here before because they knew exactly where they were going. "They went straight to the auditorium and started unplugging the sound desk. Then they covered it in something and left. "It took them about seven minutes from start to finish. It was in broad daylight, when the market was on. I can't believe people could be so brazen." Music promoter Rick Hicks discovered the desk was missing on Monday. The theft has been reported to the police and the centre has managed to secure an interim replacement for the £1,000 sound desk so that the events held this week weren't disrupted. Anyone who recognises the men involved should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously 0800 555 111. The men are caught sneaking out of the auditorium: The thieves are then spotted smirking as they leave the building: They then saunter off towards the Green Dragon end of Surrey Street:
