JEWELLERY worth £40,000 has been stolen in a raid on a Hampshire shop.

Burglars took Pandora charms and bracelets from Bellis in the High Street at around 11pm on Sunday, February 17.

Three men forced their way into the shop before taking the goods and running off towards St Thomas Street.

A 44-year-old woman from Southampton has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to burgle and is currently in police custody.

Acting DS Ewan Gardner said: “I am appealing for anyone with any information about this incident to come forward. We believe the offenders used two vehicles to leave the scene.

“Pandora jewellery is distinctive and I would like to hear from anyone who may have been offered any Pandora items for sale. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

Anyone with information should contact the priority crime team at Winchester Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
