POLICE are hunting for two men after imitation firearms were stolen during a warehouse burglary.

Detectives are worried that the airsoft guns, which are difficult to convert into working firearms, could still cause distress to the public if used by criminals.

The two men broke into the warehouse in Willow Road, Colnbrook between Saturday, February 17 and 8am yesterday Monday, February 19. Images have been captured on CCTV.

Thames Valley Police said the men broke into the building via a rear window, and then forced entry to a small store room.

They stole a quantity of airsoft guns, which are imitation firearms. Officers believe the men in the images may have 'vital information'.

Det Con Andrew Wroe, from Slough Force CID, said: “We are investigating this burglary and I would like to speak to anyone who saw what happened or who saw any suspicious activity in the area at around the time of the incident.

“We are appealing for the people in the CCTV footage to come forward as we believe they may have vital information to help our investigation.

“We would also appeal to anyone who may have seen a white Mercedes transit van in the area at the time. If you have any dash-cam footage or any information which may assist the investigation please contact police.

“It is not believed that the airsoft guns stolen are capable of being converted to functional firearms however it is possible they could cause distress if they are used. It is vital we trace these so please contact police if you see or are offered these items."
