Smash and grab raiders strike in St John’s Wood

A high-end St John’s Wood clothing store has become the latest victim of smash and grab burglars.

Square One men’s store on St John’s Wood High Street was hit at 2am last Thursday when thieves smashed the glass front door and stole clothes.

The shop was victim to burglars last summer and this is the ninth time it has been raided in nine years.

The issue has been a major problem for St John’s Wood and last May thieves struck at other designer shops on the high street.

Brazen burglars grabbed about �100,000 worth of clothes and bags in raids on Larizia and Zadig & Voltaire.

No arrests have been made regarding the Square One burglary and police say enquiries continue.
