South Yorkshire Police has posted online CCTV footage of two men committing fraud at a Doncaster high-street jeweller.

The men can be seen discussing the sale of a gold necklace to the jeweller, before agreeing on a £7,000 price and leaving with the money.

South Yorkshire Police reported, however, that while the necklace that the Mexborough jeweller inspected was a genuine gold piece, one of the fraudsters used sleight of hand to switch it with a much less valuable counterpart before handing it over and exiting.


South Yorkshire Police revealed: “Our officers would like to trace the two men in the footage and question them in connection with the incident.

“If you know who they are, or have any information which could help, please contact police on 101.”
