Thieves get away with £16,000 worth of top quality winter coats from 4-Seasons
Police believe a professional gang was behind a Seaton burglary in which £16,000 worth of clothing was stolen.
The break in at 4-Seasons, near the Co-Op supermarket, happened in the early hours of Friday, January 12.
The front door of the shop was forced and dozens of high value coats were taken.
The haul included some 240 winter jackets worth up to £150 each from high quality makes including Jack Murphy, Regatta, Lighthouse and Flexophane.
Owner Janet Phillips found the empty rails when she opened up for business.
She told The Herald: “The CCTV showed a man coming in to the store with his head bowed so you could not see his face. He was wearing a baseball cap, grey puffer jacket, trainers and jeans.”
The intruder disabled the CCTV, phone and internet before stealing the coats.
“He knew exactly what he was after, police say it was a very professional job,” said Mrs Phillips. “He took only our most expensive coats.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101.
