Police issue jewellers raid plea

Created on 02/12/2010 @ 15:29


Police say they want to speak to a woman that was a customer at County Goldsmiths just two minutes before the Church Street jewellers was raided yesterday.
Three masked men barged into the shop at 4.58pm but were fought off by its owner Stuart Woodings and fled empty handed.
Now the local police are appealing for the public to help and have asked the customer, who bought two rings, to come forward to see whether she saw anything suspicious as she left the shop.
Detective Inspector Ian Andrews said: “The males left empty handed and it is believed that they got into a Silver coloured vehicle that was parked on Cumberland Place nearby. Not long before the offence a lady customer was in the shop and purchased two rings. The police would like that lady to come forward in case she saw any persons loitering near the premises.
“The males were dressed in dark clothing; they wore hoods or scarves and sunglasses. After leaving the premises empty handed they turned left along Church St away from the main cross roads. A witness has described seeing similar males getting into a Silver car on Cumberland Place.”
Any person with information or who saw anything suspicious should contact the police at Welshpool by ringing 101 within Wales, 01267 222020 outside Wales or by ringing Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
