Two distinctive rings among items stolen during distraction theft.
A jewellery retailer in Cambridge was robbed last Thursday 25th, with two distinctive rings among the £5,000 worth of jewellery stolen.
The retailer, Palenque, in Sidney Street in the famous university city, was targeted by thieves who distracted staff in the store at around 5pm last Thursday.
Three gold rings and a gold earring were taken from the store, including a white metal wedding band set with two rows of diamonds, and what appears to be a multi-coloured gold ring, set with a rainbow of gemstones or coloured diamonds (pictured).
PC Dave Hall of Cambridgeshire police released images of the rings and is appealing for members of the public to come forward if they recognise the jewellery or have seen it for sale. He said: “They are very distinctive and I would urge anyone who has been offered them for sale or has any information about the theft to contact police.”
Anyone with information should contact PC Hall on 0345 4564564 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
The theft is not being linked to a raid at Royal Selangor, Rose Crescent, in Cambridge, which took place on Wednesday 17th August in which a member of staff was threatened with a knife.
