Masked robbers dressed in full camouflage steal over $60,000 worth of 3D printers in Southern California

It’s not always easy being top wolf. Here at Airwolf 3D, we take pride in building our 3D printers in Southern California. With our burgeoning reputation for providing the best 3D desktop printers on the market, however, it is inevitable that we must face some of the challenges that come with producing top-in-class products that are in high demand. At approximately 6:00 AM on June 5, 2016, two suspects broke in to Airwolf 3D’s warehouse and and stole over $60,000 worth of 3D printers. Thankfully no one here at Airwolf 3D was hurt during the break-in and we have taken actions to ensure the continued safety of our employees.

Caught on camera: Stealing 3D printers in Southern California

Thanks to our security system and network of surveillance cameras, we were able to view a portion of the robbery in action and it appears to have been well organized and planned in advance. The security footage showed the two suspects arrive in a champagne-colored Ford Econoline van. They stopped briefly before throwing the vehicle into reverse and swiftly ramming into Airwolf 3D’s warehouse receiving door and breaking the door open, so they could access inventory located closest to their point of entry. The robbery took a total time of under three minutes.

It appears that there were two suspects directly involved in the robbery and they are believed to be a man and a woman. The woman wore all black and had her face covered. Dressed head-to-toe in green camouflage battle dress, the driver is seen jumping out of the van before climbing back in again.

The vehicle sustained some damage on its rear bumper and our security team is currently using forensic software to try to analyze both the van’s license plate number and the identity of the suspects.
