Cheshire Police Appeal following aggravated burglary at jewellers in Crewe

John PassPolice in Crewe are appealing for witnesses after a jewellery store on Nantwich Road was targeted by thieves.

At just after 5.15pm on Thursday 13th November 2014, police were called to John Pass Jewellers, Nantwich Road, Crewe after two thieves smashed the store front in an attempt to steal expensive jewellery from the display.

One of the men was armed with a lump hammer which was used to smash the glass window pane. Items of jewellery were then grabbed by the men who fled the scene on foot towards Westminster Street.

Cheshire policeThe shop was in the process of closing for the evening and thankfully nobody was hurt as a result of the incident.

Detective Sergeant Glyn Leech said:
The area around the store was very busy at the time, given the fact it was the evening rush hour Nantwich Road was congested with traffic, and a number of pedestrians were out and about.
Both the men involved in this crime are described as white, aged between 20-30 years of age and dressed in dark clothing.
We have a number of lines of enquiry that we are actively pursuing and appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time, or driving past, who witnessed the incident take place or indeed the men fleeing the scene, to contact Crewe CID on 101 quoting incident number 610.
