Thames Valley thieves caught on camera

08 November 2005Written by ATG Reporter

ATG have received these new pictures of two men thought to be targeting antique shops and centres in the Thames Valley area.

The thieves stole two items of jewellery from Town Hall Antiques in Woburn, Bedford-shire back in mid-September.

Related thefts in Wallingford and Tetsworth were reported in ATG No 1709, October 8.

At Woburn, the ruby and diamond-set 18ct gold Victorian lady's watch and an 18ct bracelet were kept in a locked, alarmed cabinet, but there was a small gap which the thieves used to hook out the items, presumably using a thin wire.

They subsequently returned to the shop in early October, but made a hasty retreat after seeing their pictures on the wall behind the counter.
They were also foiled in a recent attempt to steal from a shop in Berkhamstead.
