Drop That Plaid! The Great Burberry Robbery – 19/2/10

Some people will go to great lengths for a piece of Christopher Bailey-designed Burberry - eight pallets of designer plaid have been stolen from Lincolnshire in England.

The great Burberry robbery happened whilst the Burberry goods were in transit. A lorry driver delivering the sought after plaid awoke to find seven men in ski masks emptying his truck.

Let’s hope the police catch up to these crims and swap their stylish plaid for prison jumpsuits!
