The Dolce and Gabbana Bond Street store is the latest target to experience the smash-and-grab robbers in London’s West End, which is to say the least, extremely disheartening.
The raid took place around 10pm on Tuesday evening, and stands as the fifth of its kind to happen across many designer London stores in the past fortnight.
“We were called at 10pm on Tuesday May 10 to a report of a burglary at the D&G store on New Bond Street,” said a spokesperson for the Met to Vogue UK.
“Witnesses said four men on three scooters pulled up outside the store and broke in. Two suspects entered the store and left with a quantity of items, the value of which is unknown at present. The suspects left the scene and officers seized the third scooter, which the suspects abandoned on the pavement. Wesminster Crime Squad is now investigating.”
Many are questioning whether or not this recent robbery may have been carried out by the same gang who stole valuable merchandise from other stores across London, including 50 bags worth more than £45,000 from Anya Hindmarch earlier this month – but police insist it’s “too early to establish any link”.
