A suspected burglar linked to moped crime has been arrested in Camden after a raid where stolen goods were found.

Police raided the property on Cubitt Street in Camden at 6.25am on February 6. A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and was taken to an east-London police station.

Among the items found were a Moncler designer jacket, and a number of designer watches, mobile phones, bank cards and car keys.

The Moncler jacket and one set of Bentley car keys have been confirmed as having been stolen during a theft reported in December, where the items were taken from the victim’s car.

A mobile phone is also confirmed to have been stolen after it was traced to its owner who had recently been visiting London from Holland when his phone was stolen in a moped-enabled snatch.

Detective Inspector Duncan Platt, from the North Area Tasking Team’, said: “Following this morning’s successful raid to combat theft and moped-enabled theft, we were able to recover a number of goods, some of which are already confirmed to be stolen. Today’s operation highlights the tireless efforts going into identifying thieves and bringing them to justice”.
