WATCH: £150K Of Handbags Seized In Shop Raid
Tuesday 27th May 2014
This is the chilling CCTV footage of thieves seizing £150,000 worth of designer handbags from a Knightsbridge store.
The video shows the two men entering The Designer Exchange on Egerton Terrace and seizing multiple designer handbags, while shoppers are forced to watch helplessly.
A shop assistant pulls the emergency cord about twenty seconds into the robbery, causing smoke to flood the shop and forcing the thieves to flee.
Fortunately no one was injured during the incident on Saturday, and so far no arrests have been made.
Detective Constable Neil Webb from Notting Hill Police Station said:
“Officers attended the store in Egerton Terrace within six minutes of
the initial call to police.
“A search of the local area was conducted. Unfortunately, the suspects made off prior to police arriving.
“Anyone with information is urged to call Notting Hill CID on 0208-246-0173 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.”
