Detectives from Kent Police are appealing for information following an aggravated burglary at a jewellery shop in the town of Tenterden.

At around 5:45pm on Tuesday, 9 November 2021, a dark-coloured Mercedes 4×4 reversed into the front of White’s Jewellers in the town’s High Street, Kent Police reported in a Facebook post.

It read: “Four men, all of whom had their faces covered and wore dark clothing, then entered the premises and stole jewellery before getting back into the vehicle and driving off in the direction of Rolvenden. No injuries were reported.


“Police were called and officers attended the scene. A vehicle was subsequently seized and an investigation is ongoing.

“Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who may have dashcam or CCTV footage which could assist detectives, is urged to call Kent Police on 01843 222289, quoting 46/228312/21.

“You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, or by using the online form on their website.”

Meanwhile, Kent Online quoted the shop’s owner, Geoff Moss, as saying that the crime seemed “professional”.

“They timed it perfectly, just as we were collecting everything for closing,” he told Kent Online. “They smashed a case but didn’t take anything from there, just the window jewels.”
