Police make public appeal after smash and grab raid
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.
