Arsenal’s club shop was burgled overnight, as shown from the recent pictures on social media that were taken from the scene of the crime.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed that the store, located near the Emirates Stadium, had been raided overnight. The store is located in Drayton Park at Highbury House in Islington.
Pictures of the damaged store front emerged this morning. The metal grate protecting the entrance had been bent out of shape.

The exact damages and number of items stolen has yet to be confirmed, but it’s believed a “large quantity of goods” had been taken. The suspects then escaped in a car and on two mopeds.
There were no injuries and no arrests have been made, with the police still making enquiries. The police are also urging anyone in the area who might have information to contact them.
“Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. You can also tweet information via @MetCC.”
The club shop carries several pieces of Arsenal merchandise, including replica shirts, training gear, Arsenal-brand fashion and mugs. While the store at Highbury House will likely be out of action for a bit, the store at the Emirates Stadium should still be operational.
