Police are appealing for witnesses after a robbery at a jeweller’s shop in Tiptree.
Two masked men entered Cartouche in The Centre at around 10am today, Thursday September 1, and smashed a jewellery cabinet with some sort of heavy tool.
They made off with an amount of jewellery, thought to be worth a five figure sum. The men were unarmed and no one was injured.
Witnesses reported seeing the suspects drive off in a black Mercedes C220.
Enquiries are ongoing and officers remain at the scene speaking to witnesses and scoping local CCTV.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Ds Richard Edwards at Colchester CID on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
