MILLWALL have launched an internal investigation after several first-team players had expensive watches stolen from the club's training ground.
As many as five watches, worth thousands of pounds, have disappeared during a spate of thefts dating back to last season and the Lions have confirmed that they are trying to identity who is responsible.
A source admitted to NewsAtDen that the club suspects an employee – possibly even a player – is involved, rather than a member of the public.
Millwall called in the Metropolitan Police in March when two watches were taken from the club's Calmont Road training base within three days of each other.
A probe was launched but a police spokesperson said that "no suspects came to light and no arrests were made after both incidents were thoroughly investigated."
However, more watches have been taken this season – one just last week – and Millwall have now stepped up their efforts to identify the culprit.
