Police appeal following theft from jewellers

John Freeman
Police are appealing for witnesses following a theft from a jeweller’s in Lancaster.

The incident happened on Tuesday 7th August at HM Samuels on Market Street between 4.00 and 4.10pm.

The offender has asked to see some engagement rings which were located in a display cabinet. The staff member has placed a ring on the counter and the offender has snatched it and ran off. The ring was worth over £3,000.

PC Philip Williamson from Lancaster police said, “I would appeal to anyone who recognises this man to come forward and get in touch.

“I would also appeal to people who may have been out in Lancaster City Centre on the Tuesday afternoon who may have seen a man acting in a suspicious manor who was perhaps running down Market Street.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Lancaster police on 101.
