Police appeal after Olympic medals stolen

Police are appealing for information after the alleged theft of two Olympic Bronze medals from Mahiki Nightclub, W1 in the early hours of Wednesday, 24th October.

On both occasions, the victims, one man and one woman, - both Olympic athletes at this year's Games - had left their jackets unattended whilst at the venue. Some time later both parties realised their jacket, and the medals inside them, were gone.

The jacket belonging to the man, but not containing the medal, was handed into a northwest London police station.

Inquiries continue to try and trace both medals and the jacket.

Detectives from Westminster CID are investigating both incidents and are currently looking at CCTV from the venue.
