The Steffans jewellery store in Market Harborough was struck by a ram-raid robbery on November 14, with a vehicle used to smash into a wall of the store in the early hours of the morning.

According to a Leicestershire Police report, the Steffans store on The Square in Market Harborough was targeted at about 4:45am, with the suspects smashing into the shop, which is part  of a listed building.

Two men aged 35 and 36 and both from Northampton have been charged with burglary. The police report states that all goods believed to have been taken in the burglary have been recovered.

According to Steffans Facebook page, a silver 4×4 was witnessed leaving the scene. It is understood the robbery was thwarted by a fog system being activated in-store. The shop was closed on November 14, reopening on November 15 after builders repaired the damage to the brickwork.

Wes Suter, managing director at Steffans, was not immediately available for comment. His father Steff Suter posted a note on the Steffans Facebook page thanking the police and his team for their support.

The two men are due to appear at Northampton Magistrates Court this morning, Monday November 17.
