At least eight luxury vibrators, some plated with 24-karat gold, have been stolen from Spanish sex toy wholesaler Dreamlove for loot worth tens of thousands of euros, the company said on Friday.
The three thugs, who grabbed high-end items including a gold-plated version whose price starts at 15,000 euros - the cost increasing with size and functionality - seemed to know exactly what they were looking for, explained to AFP Idiared Aponte, the commercial director of the brand based in Seville, in the south of the country.
Luxury sex toys
The thieves, who broke into the premises just before midnight on Wednesday, "
searched until they reached the secure area where the golden dildos and a large sum of cash
were located ", she told the newspaper. AFP.
Eight sex toys were thus stolen, six in gold-plated and two in stainless steel, costing "
between 3,500 and 7,000 euros
As these are luxury sex toys and rare on the market, I don't think it will be very easy for thieves to resell them
," said Idiared Aponte.
The criminals also took 25,000 euros in cash which were hidden in a safe inside the warehouse, located in an industrial park 10 kilometers east of Seville.
On the surveillance images consulted by AFP, we see three people masked and in black forcing the entrance to the property with a hammer and an ax, after having cut off the lighting.
On its website, Dreamlove, which was founded in 2007, describes itself as a "
pleasure product powerhouse
" with more than 20,000 items in stock, ranging from sex toys to lingerie.
