Thieves Pose As Mannequins, Steal Multi-million Naira Designer Clothes

The thieves posed side by side with real mannequins, and waited patiently until the store closed. Then they went for the kill!

The following morning, the store owners watched the CCTV with horror as the thieves moved effortlessly through the aisles, selecting expensive clothes and other designer stuff that caught their fancy.

At the end of the heist, the thieves made away with clothes worth approximately £10,000. They left the store via a fire escape, setting off fire alarms.

The heist took place at a Beales store in Worthing, Sussex, United Kingdom.

Although Sussex Police have appealed for information that could lead to their arrest, the thieves have continued to be on the run.

Said a shop assistant, “They must have secreted themselves and pretended to be mannequins.

“They probably dressed in clothes identical to those worn by the mannequins and stood there, not moving a muscle till the shop shut and everyone went home.

“They took oilskin jackets, high-end designer clothes and the like.

“It showed incredible nerve — the store is equipped from top to bottom with sensor alarms and cameras.

“They must have stood there with the mannequins, not daring to move a muscle — imagine if they wanted to sneeze or had an itch they couldn’t scratch!”

A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: “We are investigating after the break-in was reported at Beales store in South Street.

“Clothing was stolen and the burglars left the store through the fire escape, which set off the alarm. It is not clear how they got in.

“Officers are continuing to investigate. Anyone who saw anything or has any information is asked to contact police on 101 or on Crimestoppers anonymously.”

A Beales spokesman said: “We do not wish to comment now.”

Rihanna Beats Kanye As Most Talked About Designer On Twitter

Despite selling out Madison Square Garden for his Yeezy Season 3 show, dropping a controversial new album and making headlines for his increasingly frequent Twitter rants of late, Kanye West did not generate the biggest buzz during New York Fashion Week.

According to data collected by Twitter, Rihanna’s debut collection for Puma dominated the #NYFW conversation. Puma and Rihanna both took the number-one spot for most talked about brand and most mentioned celebrity, respectively. Plus, the image Rihanna shared from her inaugural runway show ranked among the week’s most viral photos with over 17,200 retweets and 35,500 favorites.

Kanye may claim to be “50 percent more influential” than some of history’s most famous figures, but it’s RiRi who’s commanding the attention of the style set this season.
