Smash-and-grab robbers steal handbags worth £100,000

Seven people were arrested yesterday as part of a police investigation into a smash-and-grab robbery at a shop on St John's High Street on Monday night.

Six suspects rode up to the Larizia store on mopeds and smashed through the shutters and the window into the shop.

They stole a number of luxury designer hand bags, believed to be worth around £100,000, and rode away.

Six men and one woman have been arrested and some of handbags have been recovered.

Today's arrests, and other recent successes, show our determination to tackle this type of commercial robbery and bring those responsible to justice.

– Detective Inspector Spencer Barnett

The arrests follow recent successful operations that led to arrests and charges following smash-and-grab robberies at Parmigiani in Mount Street and the Dorchester Hotel earlier this month.
