Masked thieves smash and grab valuable watches, rings within minutes
The CCTV footage of a robbery scene showed a band of masked thieves smashed and grabbed valuable watches and rings worth more than £100,000 from a jewellery shop within minutes in Cambridgeshire.
The masked thieves were seen wearing gloves and long-sleeved tops and trousers while breaking the protective display glass and grabbing expensive watches and rings into sacks.
The alarm was triggered as soon as the group entered the shop, however, they managed to flee from the scene.
The incident took place in Ely, Cambridgeshire at the Italian Jewellery shop on Friday morning where they made off with more than £100,000 worth of watches and rings, according to local police.
Reacting to Friday’s incident, Italian Jewellery said on Facebook: “We are very sad to let you know today that during the night our shop in Ely was robbed.
