A BROMSGROVE town centre shop had £31,000 worth of designer clothing stolen from it in broad daylight yesterday(Wednesday).

Among the items taken from Block 98, Worcester Road, were several top brands, including Armani, Hugo Boss, True Religion and Anthony Morato.

Police investigating the burglary, which happened between 11am and 11.15am, believe three men and a woman were involved in the theft.

Two waited outside while the other two entered, placing more than 200 items into two large blue and white laundry bags, before leaving.

The four then turned left and fled down George Street where it is believed they got into a small dark car, possibly parked on the Market Street Car Park. It is thought the car was then involved in an accident at the junction of Charford Road and the A38.

The two who stayed outside the shop, a man and a woman, were both white. The man was 5ft ins tall and aged between 30 and 40. He was of average build and had black scraggly hair, a pale face with dark stubble and was wearing a black jacket.

The woman was in her early 30s, around 5ft 8ins tall and of average height. She was wearing a black dress or skirt. Both appeared unkempt.

Of the thieves who entered the store was a white man in his late 30s, around 5ft 5ins to 5ft 8ins tall and of medium build. He was wearing a dark baseball cap, sunglasses and a dark blue body warmer.

The other man was black, in his late 30s to early 40s, around 5ft 7ins tall and slim. He had dreadlocks and a gaunt face with greying stubble. He was wearing a hat and a fluorescent vest.

PC Rose Hughes appealed for any witnesses or anyone with any information to call her on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

"The smallest detail could be important to our investigation so if you saw anything then please get in touch,” she said.
