Two people arrested following theft of clothing from Trelise Cooper
Two people have been arrested after a significant amount of clothing was taken from fashion designer Trelise Cooper’s premises last month.
The burglary was at Dame Trelise Cooper’s commercial premises in Epsom. It was reported in October that about 1800 items were stolen.
Police carried out a search warrant in central Auckland today and arrested two people.
A 41-year-old man has been charged with burglary and a woman, 45, has been charged with receiving stolen property.
A significant amount of the clothing has been recovered.
The arrested pair are due to appear in the Auckland District Court tomorrow.
Police could not rule out the possibility of further arrests and charges.
