Crooks steal five iconic James Bond movie guns in £100,000 raid – The Sun

FIVE  iconic James Bond movie guns worth more than £100,000 have been stolen in a raid.

Police said three men broke into a collector’s home  to swipe the deactivated weapons.

They fled in a vehicle before police arrived at the scene.

The devastated homeowner reported missing a pair of Beretta  Cheetah and Tomcat pistols used in 2002 flick Die Another Day.

A  Llama .22 calibre handgun from the film — starring Pierce Brosnan as 007 and Halle Berry as US agent Jinx Johnson — was also taken.

Others stolen were a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum from 1973’s Live and Let Die, and a Walther PPK used in 1985’s A View to a Kill.

Both films featured Roger Moore as the legendary spy.

The Met said officers were called to a burglary in Enfield, North London, at  8pm last Monday.

Det  Insp  Paul Ridley, of North Area Crime Investigation Department  said: “The firearms stolen are very distinctive and bespoke to particular James Bond movies.


“They will almost certainly be recognised by the public and to anyone offered them for sale. Many of them are irreplaceable.

“The Magnum is the only one in the world ever made in which the whole gun is finished in chrome. It has a 6½in barrel and wood grips.

“The Walther PPK was the last gun used by Roger Moore in A View to a Kill.

“The owner is very upset that his address has been violated and he truly hopes to be reunited with these highly collectable items.”

Neighbours described the intruders as males with Eastern European accents who drove from the scene  in a silver vehicle.

It is believed they forced entry into the back of the property.

Det  Insp   Ridley added:  “I would urge anyone who may have seen the burglars arriving and leaving to come forward to my investigation team as a priority.

“We also want to hear from anyone who may know where the firearms are, or who may have been offered these stolen items for sale.”
