London - Thieves who took part in a night-time raid made off with jewellery from two high end shops in London’s Royal Exchange shopping centre.
Windows were smashed at De Beers and Omega stores around 10 pm on Saturday, August 14. An alarm sounded at Tiffany's, but it is not believed anything was taken from that shop.
The BBC reported that police stated the robbers arrived in a car. CCTV footage will be examined in an attempt to identify the vehicle. Security cameras were also operating inside the centre.
Sky News quoted a security guard, who wished to remain anonymous, as saying: "We don't know how much has been taken, but with the price of some of the stuff inside these shops just a few items could easily run up to a very, very large amount.”
"It's looking as though whoever has done this has been targeting the shops for a long time."
De Beers is well known for diamond jewellery and Omega for Swiss watches.
The Royal Exchange, which was built in 1565, includes more than 30 luxury stores including Gucci, Hermes, Bulgari and Cartier.
