by | May 22, 2017 | News | 0 comments


Thieves have made off with three brand new Jacuzzi hot tubs after breaking into a showroom near Lichfield.

The tubs worth ?28,000 were taken from All Weather Leisure Ltd at Shenstone Garden Centre, Birmingham Road, at 10.07pm on Friday, May 12. A national alert has been issued by the British and Irish Hot Tub Association (BISHTA).

?Forensic police have visited the showroom and have gathered evidence as well as the serial numbers of the stolen hot tubs.

All Weather Leisure’s managing director, Liam Shelley, said: “This is devastating, we are now over ?28,000 of stock down in one day, needless to say, we were in total shock.?This is an attack on our business and our livelihood.”

He claimed: “This is obviously organised crime, and we can only speculate that these hot tubs were stolen to order or to go out of the country.”

Details of the stolen hot tubs are:

  • Jacuzzi J225IP serial 100616843 in Platinum and Roast
  • Jacuzzi J345IP serial 100609163 in Platinum and Drift
  • Jacuzzi J345IP serial 100613273 in Midnight and Drift

A spokesman?for BISHTA said: “This is a massive loss for this family run business, but they are determined to stay strong, trading as normal and looking forward to serving their new and existing customers.

“BISHTA is eager to assist any company in the industry and is keen to help reunite All Weather Leisure with their stolen stock and request people to please be vigilant.”

Anyone with any information about the crime or the whereabouts of the hot tubs should call Staffordshire Police at once on 101.
