Four people have been arrested after raiders ‘wearing Halloween masks’ stole jewellery from a village jewellers.
The robbery took place at around 10am yesterday (1 September), when two masked men entered Tiptree Jewellers in Tiptree, Essex, and smashed a jewellery cabinet with a heavy tool.
The men made off with an amount of jewellery, believed to be a worth a five-figure sum. The shop, and part of the square it’s located on, was cornered off by police while a forensic scientific support team carried out investigations.
The men, who were reported to have driven off in a Mercedes C220, were unarmed and Essex Police said no one was injured during the raid.
Two men from Romford, aged 58 and 30, one 36-year-old man from Colchester and a 55-year-old woman from Romford were arrested yesterday on suspicion of robbery.
Enquiries are still ongoing and Essex Police has urged anyone with further information to contact Ds Richard Edwards at Colchester CID on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
