Thousands of pounds worth of clothing stolen in Keswick ram-raid

police tape2[P]olice were called to an incident at 4:45am on Sunday, 14th May 2017, at Market Place, Keswick.

The incident involved a dark coloured, Citroen Picasso reversing into a shop door, and a quantity of outdoor clothing, worth thousands of pounds being taken.

The items stolen include RAB jackets in a variety of colours, blue & black Montane Jackets, Montane long sleeve t-shirts in marine and cosmos, and Berghaus t-shirts in black, grey, blue, green and red.

The vehicle may have a damaged window. It is also believed that the same offender has been responsible for the removal of a wooden footpath sign stating “Little Braithwaite 1/2 mile”.

Temporary Detective Sergeant Grattan said: “This burglary targeted a local clothing shop, and thousands of pounds worth of stock was taken. We are appealing to anyone with any information regarding this incident to please get in touch.

“We would also like to appeal to anyone who might be approached to purchase these items to decline and get in touch. Purchasing stolen goods is an offence, and if an offer seems too good to be true it probably is.”

Anyone with information should email [email protected] or call police on 101 and ask to speak to DC 2002 Gilmour. Alternatively you can contact CrimeStoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111
