Sledgehammer used in attempted burglary

31st December 2012 Uncategorized 0 Comments

Two men tried to break into a jewellery shop in Beeston with a sledgehammer.
The men, who were masked, attacked the window of Onyx Goldsmiths, in High Road, at around 9.30am today (Monday 31st December 2012).

The shop was open at the time, but the men did not enter the building after being deterred by the activation of the shop’s shutters.

No one was injured.

The men fled empty-handed.

Beeston Detective Karl Aram said:

“We believe the men arrived on foot from the direction of Derby Street. Did you see anyone carrying a sledgehammer in the area shortly before the incident?

“We also believe the men left the scene in the direction of Broadgate. If you saw anything suspicious in the High Road area of Beeston this morning, please call us.”

Witnesses or anyone with any information should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident 162 of 31st December 2012, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Press release issued by Nottinghamshire Police.
