Pam loses £4000 gems to night raiders
Detectives will question 20 girl models today to help solve a robbery at photographer Harrison Marks’ flat. The Raiders struck on Saturday night and stole £4000 worth of jewellery belonging to his wife model Pamela Green, and over £6000 in cash. The gems and money were in a safe at their first-floor home in Readington Road, Hampstead.
The face came over a balcony of the first floor flat while Mr Marks was on a 45-minute visit to neighbours. Said Mr Marks last night: “ They obviously knew their way around. The safe was in a cubbyhole behind a tie rack.”
To remove it, the raiders chiselled away plaster and then levered the safe on the wall. It was dumped half a mile away. Mr Marks said: “The money was to have been used by me to launch a series of comedy films.”
Another over the balcony raid was carried out on the same night on a block of flats at Eaton Square Belgravia. The thieves escaped with furs and jewellery worth nearly £1000.
Mr Marks’ studio was ransacked four months ago and over £5000 worth of camera equipment was stolen.
