A Costcutter store in Manchester was suffering from multiple attacks, armed robberies and shoplifting.
The store manager had certainly had enough when at the end of a three-month spell he had been robbed or threatened eight times. This was despite fitting an alarm system and 11 CCTV cameras. Police were not responding in time and the manager was putting himself at real risk by confronting the criminals, sometimes giving chase with a baseball bat. In one incident the manager was actually shot at.
We introduced the first ever Sentry 500 redDNA forensic alarm into this store two years ago. The store has not been robbed since. An interesting aside was that shrinkages were reduced by 50% - through thieves' fear of being caught.
Since installing the RedWeb Sentry 500 spray solution the attacks have stopped. In fact I have had a number of youths asking what's this RedWeb DNA, to which I reply attack me and you'll find out.
