$1 Million Worth of Ksubi Stolen
Fashionista thieves target current season pieces.
There's going to be some very well-dressed criminals getting around town. Over the weekend, $1 million worth of Ksubi jeans (new season, mind you!) were stolen from the label's warehouse in Alexandria, Sydney. It seems these felons are quite the fashionistas - entering the building through a rehearsal studio in the roof, they disregarded $300,000 worth of guitars, instead taking 3,000 pairs of jeans from the AW12 'W.A.R.' collection.
Ksubi co-founder George Gorrow tells The Daily Telegraph that the AW12 collection was targeted because it had sold-out quickly in-store. "The stock was tricky to locate [to purchase], they had to be looking for that product. They went through different boxes, which had holes punched through them and products pulled out. They were calculated about the stock that they took."
Police say the break-in at the warehouse on Rosebery Street happened anywhere between 5:30pm on Friday afternoon and 4:15am on Sunday morning. The robbers escaped in a Mazda van, which they had also stolen from the warehouse, found early Sunday morning burnt-out in Glebe.
