PTS Red Call 20 November 2019 - Yesterday Stanley Gibbons apprehended an individual who had tried to steal c.£12,000 worth of stamps from our up-coming auction. Witnessed by supervising staff and clear CCTV footage ensured the culprit, Mr. Mehmet Basaran, was detained by police and arrested for theft. Stanley Gibbons will always prosecute and to the degree that we can influence the path taken, push for the strongest possible punishment. Mr Basaran is a long-established collector and likely attends several auction houses. The Trade should be extremely vigilant if they choose to continue to do business with Mr Basaran.
