Thieves steal tens of thousands of pounds of slippers

Police are appealing for information after thieves broke into a factory and stole distinctive slippers worth tens of thousands.

A few hundred boxes of the high-value, distinctive, slippers were stolen from the facility in Swindon - costing the company tens of thousands of pounds.

They were taken from a factory in the Groundwell Industrial Estate at some point overnight, possibly between 4am and 6.30am on August 26.

It's thought the offender, or offenders, gained entry to the site by breaking through a metal fence and forcing a stock room door - before potentially using a van to transport the items.

We would urge people to take a look at the photographs and keep an eye out for them for sale.

These types of slippers are only sold through the main Mahabis dealer website, so any found on third party sites such as Facebook, Gumtree, Trade-It, Amazon or eBay are unlikely to be genuine or may be stolen goods.
