BURGLARS broke into a menswear store and dragged large bags of clothes out the back door.

The five men entered Dartagnan Menswear in North Street, Chichester, at 11pm on Wednesday.

Police were called after a “large quantity of clothes” were stolen.

Investigating officer PC Darren Triggs said: “We believe the group dragged the bags over a brick wall and a locked gate to a nearby car park and fled from the scene.

“The effort to move the clothes would have caused a fair amount of noise and disruption. Did you hear anything?

“The suspects were all wearing gloves and masks covering their faces and their clothing is currently unknown.”

Police are urging anyone with any information to report it online or call 101 quoting 1437 of 10/04.
