Haul of diamond rings stolen from Aaron Lyons Goldsmiths, Hamlet Court Road
A HAUL of diamond rings was stolen from a Westcliff jewellers in the early hours of this morning.
Thieves gained entry to Aaron Lyons Goldsmiths, in Hamlet Court Road, at about 12.35am today via the back of the premises.
Police want to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area or who may be offered a diamond ring in dubious circumstances.
Investigating officer, Det Sgt Andy Copley, said: "It’s likely that quite a lot of noise was caused in forcing entry to this jewellers, so I’m hoping that there might be witnesses out there who heard the commotion or saw someone fleeing the scene.
"I’d also like to warn other jewellers in the area about this break-in and advise them to step up their security.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Ds Copley, or his colleagues at Rayleigh CID, on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
