These jewellery thieves just stole £1.8 million of diamonds and gold

A gang of jewelry thieves smashed their way into a store in the early hours of the morning and took jewelry worth £1.8 million.

Video footage shows a group of men taking an array of gold and diamonds from a shop in London, after police say they knocked a hole in the building’s wall with a sledgehammer.

The gang were recorded by CCTV cameras carrying out the heist at Joyalukkas, a Middle Eastern jewelry chain, in the Forest Gate area of east London.

Officers for the Metropolitan Police say the robbery took place between 3 a.m. and 6.40 a.m. on July 10, a Monday.

They said the men used a sledgehammer and a crowbar to make a hole in the wall, which three people crawled through to access the store.

The video shows hooded figures inside the store piling items of jewelry into a backpack. The stolen items include diamond necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pendants, police said.

Officers believe that a total of eight men were involved in the heist — three burglars and five look-outs, some of whom had been watching the store for more than 10 hours before the burglary was carried out.

Police highlighted suspects from the CCTV footage, and asked the public to contact them with any information about the men.

One was wearing a bright pink hooded top, another a black coat and the third a t-shirt and shorts. Some suspects were described as being in their mid-30s.

Police are yet to arrest anybody.
