Former Liverpool defender Andrea Dossena has been arrested on suspicion of shoplifting at famous department store Harrods.

The 33-year-old, who now plies his trade at League One Leyton Orient, was bailed along with a 31-year-old woman - reported to be his girlfriend.

A spokesman from the Metropolitan Police confirmed that officers were called to the west London store.

"Police arrested a 33-year-old male and a 31-year-old woman on April 7 on suspicion of shoplifting at Harrods," a spokesman told the Liverpool Echo.

"They were taken to a west London police station.

"Both the man and woman have been bailed to a date in late April, pending further enquiries."

Dossena famously scored two fantastic goals in a week for the club in 2009, in fantastic wins against Real Madrid and then Manchester United.
