Investigating officer PC Gareth Jaggard of Ruthin Police Station said: “At about 3.45 am [on] Wednesday November 20, two men forced their way into the Mococo shop in St Peter’s Square, Ruthin by smashing a display window and forcing the locked door causing extensive damage in the process.

"Once inside they stole a quantity of jewellery. Two men were seen leaving the scene and running down Upper Clwyd Street and onto Clwyd Street. One is described as wearing dark clothing and a hoodie, the second was wearing a grey hoodie.”

Police are now appealing for witnesses to the burglary or anyone who might hhave information about it to contact them. Mococo is open as usual following the burglary, with an official statement due to be released by the company later today.

PC Jaggard added: "It is also worth reminding all business owners to be vigilant at all times and always ensure your property is locked and secured and if they see any suspicious behaviour to let us know immediately."

Anyone who has any information should contact PC Jaggard on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 and quote RC13190438.

Mococo recently announced plans to extend its Liverpool store to 1,585 sq ft. The Metquarter store, currently a 352 sq ft space, will be quadrupled, and new jewellery brands will be added to the store’s offer.

The growth follows notable sales uplift across Mococo’s five stores, which are currently trading 40% up on last year, with like-for-like sales up 28% for the retailer.
