Had to travel north of the M25 for this one. I went to help a great friend open this SMP Community 3 that was in a shop being taken over by new tenants. The customers had the key so it was just a matter of decoding the combination.
This SMP safe is a high security Euro grade 3 safe, that means it contains some pretty devious mechanisms and protection to thwart an attack. This is fantastic for the owner of such a safe but a bit of a headache for a safecracker! Still, with detailed information that has taken years to compile even these types of safes don’t cause panic. Careful measurement and precise drilling causes minimum damage to the safe and leaves it in full working order once repaired. A good result, clean opening and the customer was very happy.
