Jewellery worth £7,000 is stolen after raid in Alcester
TWO items of jewellery valued at £7,000 have been stolen during a shop raid in Alcester.
An art deco platinum ring with diamond and sapphire in-lay, and a Georgian pendant with miniature portrait - totalling £7,000 - were taken from a glass cabinet which was smashed during an early morning raid at Bonners Jewellers on Thursday, 12th January.
Sarah Crump, a partner at the family run jewellers said: "Several items have been stolen but the two distinctive ones were the ring and the pendant. We do have cctv in the shop and the ADT alarms alerted the police to the break-in. We had a lot of smashed glass to clear up but the retailers and fellow jewellers of Alcester have been amazing in their support to us which is just indicative of a town like Alcester."
An offender is believed to have forced entry to the front of the premises in Market Place off High Street around 3.30am on Thursday. A glass door was damaged and an unknown quantity of jewellery is understood to have been stolen from a display cabinet.
The suspect is then thought to have made off on a pushbike in the direction of the High Street.
Enquiries are ongoing but police are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time.
Anyone with information is asked to call Warwickshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting incident number 31 of 12th January.
