A pair of trainers belonging to Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt have been stolen from a car in St Albans.
The autographed shoes, which came with a certificate of authenticity and a picture of the Olympic 100m champion, were stolen from a grey BMW outside Marlborough School on Watling Street on December 21.
The frame was smashed at the scene and the three items inside were all taken.
The footwear had been bought at a charity auction raising money for Sport for Freedom.
Investigating officer PC Ben Kirby said the memorabilia had significant value and was due to be displayed in the owner’s house.
“While the charity has very kindly offered to replace it, the victim is keen to see the return of the original to allow it to be auctioned again and raise further money for the charity,”
Police believe the incident took place between midnight and 10am on December 21.
