Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace a dark coloured Audi following a burglary from an antiques shop in Hawes.
It occurred at approximately 3am on Tuesday 4th October 2011 from Sturnam’s Antiques on Main Street.
The burglars smashed their way through the front door before breaking into a display cabinet and stealing a large quantity of jewellery. The stolen items include diamond solitaire rings and other rings set with precious and semi precious stones. They are valued in excess of £10,000.
