James Bond guns worth £100K and 'irreplaceable' stolen from Enfield property

Guns appearing in James Bond films Live and Let Die, A View to a Kill, and Die Another Die have been reported stolen from a property in North London

Five deactivated guns have been stolen that were used in a number of James Bond films.

The iconic Walther PPK handgun used in Roger Moore film A View to a Kill and the Beretta 'Cheetah' and Beretta 'Tomcat' pistols shown in Pierce Brosnan outing Die Another Day are included amongst the reported missing guns.

The Metropolitan Police were called to a burglary in progress at an Aldersbrook Avenue property in Enfield at about 8pm on Monday but the suspected burglars had fled the scene before officers arrived.

The intruders were described as three white males with European accents who drove a silver vehicle, according to neighbours.

The five firearms used in James Bond films are estimated to be worth more than £100,000, and it is believed the suspects entered the premises through a rear entrance.

The other stolen weapons include a Revolver Smith and Weston 44 Magnum shown in Roger Moore's first Bond outing Live and Let Die and also a Llama 22 calibre handgun, another gun from Die Another Day.

Detective Inspector Paul Ridley, of North Area Crime Investigation Department (CID) 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."

He continued: "Many of these items are irreplaceable. For example, the Magnum is the only one in the world ever made in which the whole gun is finished in chrome. It has a six and a half inch 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 re-united with these highly collectable items."

"I would urge any members of the public that may have witnessed the burglars arriving and leaving, or who know where the firearms are, or may have been offered these stolen items for sale, to come forward to my investigation team as a priority."

The news comes following the postponement of the most recent entry in the James Bond franchise as No Time To Die has had its release date pushed back to November due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Anyone with information related to the reported thefts is urged to contact North Area CID via 101, or by tweeting @MetCC quoting CAD 5890/23MAR20.
