Police Won't Investigate Peaches Geldof Over Theft Accusation

A representative for the TV socialite has mentioned that she will not be quizzed by the police about the accusation of stealing a $105 dress and said the case is closed.

Police officials have closed an investigation into allegations Bob Geldof's daughter stole a dress from a London store due to "insufficient evidence". The TV personality and columnist was accused of walking into a vintage retailer in Camden and swiping a $105 dress from the rails earlier in March.

A spokesperson for London's Metropolitan Police confirmed officers were investigating the claims, while the star's representative strenuously denied the allegations. Now the publicist has revealed police have contacted the star to say the case is closed and she won't be questioned.

"We have been contacted by the police today who informed us there was insufficient evidence, they had no intention of speaking to Peaches, and the case had been closed," the rep tells Britain's Daily Mail.
