Man due in court over theft of glasses which stars wore in Disney movie

A man is due to appear in court charged with burglary after luxury glasses worn in the new Disney film Cruella were stolen from a designer eyewear store.

CCTV showed thieves smashing into the Tom Davies shop in Sloane Square, central London, during a raid in which hundreds of pairs of glasses worth up to £500,000 were stolen.

Kirk Marchbank, 49, of Field Road, Fulham was charged with burglary on Thursday evening, the Metropolitan Police said.

He was due to appear at Westminster’ Magistrates’ Court on Friday July 2.

The incident took place in the early hours of June 9.

The burglars’ haul included six frames worn in Cruella, the origin story of the Disney villain from 101 Dalmatians, starring Emma Stone and Dame Emma Thompson.

A spokesman for the store said Stone and Dame Emma each wore two pairs of the glasses that were stolen.
