Organised crime gang raids Ann Summers

Thieves stole £30,000 worth of lingerie from an Ann Summers store in Portsmouth over the weekend.

The gang smashed through the back of the shop, located on Commercial Road, between 11pm on Saturday and 6.30am on Sunday morning.

Once inside, they piled the products into boxes, almost clearing out the entire front of the store.

Many of the items were security tagged and police are urging members of public to get in touch if offered them for sale.

Det. Con Parker said: "This appears to have been an organised operation carried out at night with very few people around to witness what happened, or disturb them.

"At this time it is not known whether it is a one off or part of a larger series of burglaries taking place, however, this is something we are looking in to.

"If anyone saw anything suspicious, please get in touch with us.”

This is the second lingerie raid to take place in the past few months. Over £10,000 in lingerie was recently stolen from Sadie The Bra Lady’s Durham store.
