Over £100,000 of wedding rings stolen from jewellery store

More than £100,000 worth of wedding rings have been stolen from a jewellery store in Midlothian.

Just over 100 wedding rings were taken from Beaverbrook jewellery store, within a Next shop, at Straiton Retail Park in Loanhead on Friday night.

A man forced the metal shutter and entered the shop around 11.10pm, before making off with 101 yellow gold, white gold, platinum and palladium wedding rings.

He is described as having a medium, athletic build, and was wearing light coloured loose clothing, black trainers and black gloves.

The suspect was also carrying a light coloured rucksack with a black trim and may have been riding a mountain bike.

Detective Constable Mandy Cummings said: “We are appealing to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious at the retail park at the time of this theft, particularly if they may have seen a man matching the suspect’s description.

“We would also ask people to be aware of anyone offering rings like these for sale, including other jewellers, and to get in touch if they have any information that could help with our enquiries.”

If you have any information on the theft contact police on 101.
