At the start of July (7 July), at approximately 10.30am, a man walked into a Market Place-based jewellers in Hinckley town centre, where he asked to ‘try on’ a bracelet.

He then proceeded to run out of the premises with five other bracelets, which have a total value of over £2,000.

It is believed that he ran through to a car park on Rugby Road where he subsequently drove away.

A public appeal has now been launched so that Police can speak to anyone who recognises the man, or anybody with information that could help identify him.

He said: “We would like to hear from anyone with any information that could help us identify this man.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who may have seen this man in the area around the time of the incident.

“Or from anyone who may have captured this man or his vehicle on dash cam.”

Anyone with any information is being asked to call the non-emergency Police number of 101 quoting reference 21*380463.
