Swedish UFC lightweight Reza Madadi has been arrested following a smash and grab that he was allegedly involved in at a handbag boutique, Bottega Veneta, in Stockholm.
On Friday morning, Expressen.se alleges that Madadi and his accomplices were banging against the door of the shop for five minutes before obtaining entry. Once inside a staff member said they cleared the store of expensive handbags estimated to be around the value of 1 million kronor ($150,000 USD).
The police set upon tracking down the get-away vehicle and were successful.
“We have two in custody. One of them is suspected of aggravated theft, and the other for abetting larceny,” prosecutor Olof Calmvik said.
“My client denied the charges against him. I cannot say much more until we see how this evolved,” Madadi’s lawyer Ivan Fialdini said.
