Smash and grab


TWO men who smashed their way into a Rosebud jewellery store early Monday morning got away with dress rings and less expensive jewellery items from racks and display cases, police said.

Detective Sergeant Jason Hocking, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said the men used an angle grinder to cut through two padlocks on a metal grill then smashed through double doors to Paul’s Fine Jewellery, Point Nepean Rd, 3.15am, Monday 23 October.

Once inside they smashed two cabinets and grabbed trays of rings and bracelets of an unknown value before driving away west in a late model black hatch.

Substantial damage was done to the store’s doors and door frames.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
