THOUSANDS of pounds worth of equipment was stolen from an engineering company after a thief sneaked under alarm sensors in a Mission Impossible-style raid.
The early morning break-in took place at Henry Technologies – also known as Henry Valve UK – in Hillington Industrial Estate around 12.25am on Tuesday.
Almost £12,000 worth of specialist brass equipment was nicked.
Forcing open the bottom of a fire door, the thief squeezed through a tiny 2ft-by-2ft hole.
He then crawled across the floor to avoid triggering sensors and alarms.
It is understood the stolen goods were product safety devices which are used in high-pressure systems developed by the firm.
The thief is believed to have stolen them for their scrap metal value.
After studying surveillance footage from CCTV cameras, police searched a home near Renfrew town centre early yesterday morning and arrested a suspect.
The Paisley Daily Express understands that officers visited the house at around 2am and recovered a number of items.
He is expected toappear at Paisley Sheriff Court in due course.
