Police are investigating a break-in at Carlton Football Club’s merchandise shop on March 15, which resulted in a thief taking off with about $2000 worth of stock. 

Police were called to Royal Parade in Carlton North after a man broke into the store, The Carlton Club, about 2.50am by throwing a fire hydrant cover through the window. 

“Once inside, it is believed the offender has stolen approximately $2000 worth of clothing, including short and long-sleeved jumpers,” a police spokesperson said. 

“It’s believed the thief then exited through the smashed window before fleeing.” 

No arrests have been made but detectives have released CCTV and images of a man (pictured) they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.  

The offender is described as having a solid build, and wearing a blue bucket hat, a white long-sleeved jumper, blue pants, boots, a blue surgical mask and gloves. 

The man also had a distinctive run and a seemingly hunched back, police said. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppersvic.com.au
