Smash and grab


OFFENDERS smashed a display case and stole distinctive jewellery and figurines from a market store on Mornington-Tyabb Rd, Tyabb, earlier this month.

Police are not sure of the number of offenders who jemmied open the front door to the store and robbed the stall sometime between 4.30pm, Friday 12 May and 10am, Saturday 13 May. They smashed a display case to steal the jewellery, including a “yawning” figurine and distinctive cross.

Sergeant Kim Bramwell, of police media, said images of the jewellery had been released in the hope someone may recognise the pieces or come forward with their whereabouts.

Anyone with information about the jewellery or the burglary is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at
