Jewellery and gold stolen in Carnforth

John Freeman

Detectives are appealing for information after thousands of pounds worth of jewellery, gold bullion and platinum was stolen from a jewellery shop in Carnforth.

Macmillan-Clare Designer Goldsmiths at Greenlands Farm Village, Tewitfield was targeted around 8.30pm on Wednesday 7th November 2012. At this stage, it is not known whether one person was involved or whether it was a group of people.

They gained access to the shop by breaking the locks on the door with what is believed to have been a heavy, possibly bladed, instrument.

Once the offenders entered the premises they stole two safes containing property, including various rings, necklaces and earrings, and it is believed that they were removed from the scene in a vehicle.

DC Tristan Hardwick said: “I would appeal to anybody who was in the area at the time who may have seen anybody acting suspiciously to contact police.

“I am also keen to hear from anybody who has any information at all that they think could help with this investigation.”

Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at
