Harrogate Jewellery Thieves Still on the Loose

The hunt is still on for the thieves who perpetrated a cut and grab heist at an antiques dealer in the English town of Harrogate last month. The crime occurred around 9:50 pm, after the shop closed. The burgers cut a hole in the roof, hopped down through it and commenced to smashing the cabinets so they could take what they wanted.
Among the stolen items: a yellow gold cluster ring with 30 diamonds; a Breitling watch; a 9-carat rose gold pendant; a yellow gold ring with seven diamonds; a gold chain with a rectangular Gucci pendant; two cross-shaped yellow gold earrings set with around 22 diamonds each; and dozens of limited edition silver pieces. All told, more than 200 items were stolen, which are in theory valued at around £100,000. The public has been asked for help solving the crime. The most likely way the crime will be solved, of course, is on the back end, when the thieves attempt to unload the goods. Anyone approached to buy any of the stolen items is being asked to call the North Yorkshire Police. Meanwhile, surveillance footage has been released showing one of the suspects at work. The person is thoroughly disguised, and has a well wrapped face. Come to think of it, he bears a striking resemblance to a character from much farther south, around Iping. H. G. Wells called him the Invisible Man.
