Thieves make off with �10,000 of jewellery at Canary Wharf store
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after thieves made off with �10,000 of jewellery in a smash and grab in Canary Wharf.
Thieves entered David M Robinson in Jubilee Place Mall at 2.10pm on Tuesday afternoon and attacked and smashed up displays. A staff member intervened and suffered cuts to his arms as he tried to stop the thieves who had their faces covered.
The thieves then made off across South Quay Bridge towards the Britannia hotel wearing hooded tops. Chief Inspector Ian Corner said he hoped witnesses would come forward as men wearing clothes on such a hot day would have appeared unusual to passers-by.
Police are now trawling through CCTV and witness reports to try and identify the thieves.
The shop is open as usual and the staff member is recovering.
