Police are hunting thieves who stole thousands of pounds worth of designer clothing after breaking into a store near Lichfield.

The premises of fashion store Rohan Designs at the Heart of the Country Village, off the A38 at Swinfen near Lichfield, were broken into in the early hours of November 14.

The thieves took a large amount of stock in the raid including a number of jackets from the Pinnacle, Mountain Pass, Hill top and Nightfall ranges. A number of John Partridge Jackets, full length and duffel coat styles, were also stolen.

Watches were also taken including the famous Victorinox brand all carrying the distinctive red Swiss flag logo on the face.  Also stolen were a number of Rohan gift vouchers of various amounts.

Detectives are urging anyone with information about the raid to contact them.

Detective Sergeant Mitchell Thomas, of Trent Valley CID, said:

“With Christmas rapidly approaching, these items of clothing may well be offered for sale at locations that would not normally be associated with such designer brands.”

He urged anyone who was approached with an offer of cut price clothing or anyone with information about the raid, to contact Tamworth CID on 0300 123 44 55.

People with information can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Calls to Crimestoppers are free from landlines and callers do not have to leave their name or give any information which may identify them.

People giving information may be able to claim a reward for the arrest and conviction of offenders.
