Thieves with plenty of front can’t resist Nice Baps sign in Southampton
9:24am Tuesday 7th August 2012 in Food News
IT’S a shop front that undoubtedly draws a smirk or laugh from passers-by.
But now pranksters have stolen the sign from above a Southampton cafe called Nice Baps while the owner nipped out.
Sanjeev Sharma, pictured left, was stunned to find the frontage of the business , which he has recently taken over, had vanished.
He said: “I feel really upset. I don’t have a clue why anyone has done this. Perhaps because it is made of heavy aluminium?”
The sign was stolen from the premises in Bevois Valley Road between 7.45am and 8.15am.
Mr Sharma is offering a £50 reward for its safe return in good condition, despite changing the business’s name to Cosmo Cafe.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
