POLICE are hunting a gang of brazen burglars who stole a vast stash of designer clothing from a town centre store.

Police believe four offenders targeted the OD’s designer clothing store on Cotham Street sometime between 9pm on Saturday, November 17, and 3am the following morning.

The gang, who were all wearing dark clothing, are believed to have used a white Transit-type van during the late-night raid.

Stolen items include UGG, Maharishi, Ralph Lauren, Dior, Vivienne Westwood and Armani labelled clothes, shoes and accessories.

Crime scene investigators have attended the scene and CCTV is now being examined.

DC Lesley Sanderson said: “I would urge anyone who may have any information about this incident to come forward. This type of burglary is not a victimless crime and has had a massive effect on the owners and staff of this store.

“I believe attempts will be made to sell these goods on and I would urge anyone who may have been offered such items, to get in contact.”

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call police on 0151 777 6079 or Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
