Two men have been arrested after a number of mobile phones, stolen from the changing rooms of an Orpington school, were found in a Peckham shop.

On March 4, the phones were stolen after schoolboys left their belongings in the changing rooms of St Olave's School, Goddington Lane, during a rugby sevens tournament.

One of the victims tracked his phone to Rye Lane in Peckham.

Another victim went to Rye Lane and saw both his phone and those of other victims in the display cabinet of a shop.

On March 13 at 4.20pm, officers from Bromley police's youth policing team and Mottingham safer neighbourhood team executed a search warrant at a commercial premises in Rye Lane.

A large quantity of mobile phones shown as blocked or stolen were recovered, including a number stolen from the school.

Other phones recovered have been linked to burglaries and robberies across London.

An investigation is ongoing.

Two men, aged 18 and 40, were arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. 

Both have been bailed until April 24.

Just the tip of the iceberg. If the police did random on the spot checks on these 'mobile phone repair shops' they'd be quite surprised by the outcome...

It's wrong that trading standards allow these 'booths'to operate at all let alone on the backs of other outlets, nor shops of this kind either. Its not very pleasant to find your stolen phone has been sold on for ill gotten gains. Still thats the kind of thing we are supposed to put up with in this country today isnt it?
