Thousands of pounds worth of stock has been stolen from a Rugby businessman just three days after moving to town centre premises.

Craig Noble - The iPhone Medic - had been running his business from his home before expanding into premises within the Rugby Business Centre in Clifton Road.

He opened on Monday last week and just three days later he had been burgled.

Thousands of pounds worth of iPads, iPhones and a laptop were stolen during the raid.

Mr Noble said: “I had been there just three days and then disaster struck.

“To say I’m gutted is an absolute understatement.

“Why me? I keep thinking ‘was I being watched?’.

“It’s such a disappointment. You work so hard and then this.”

Thieves broke into the business centre before smashing the door to The iPhone Medic’s office.

Mr Noble said: “They’ve taken everything.

“They’ve gone in and completely cleaned up.

“They knew what they wanted and they came for it.”

Mr Noble, who fixes iPhone and iPads, said his business is now on hold for now.

He said: “I won’t be going back there. The business is on hold while the insurance is sorted out.

“I hope to start up somewhere else.

“Most of my customers have been very understanding.

“Others just want their devices back. It’s very frustrating.”
