JEWELLERY thieves who stole rings, a pendant and a bracelet from a shop in St Albans last Saturday are being hunted by police.

The four offenders, three men and a woman, entered Kingshill Jewellers in the Market Place at around 11.40am on Saturday and while two of the men distracted shop staff, the other couple opened a front cabinet and removed up to £2,000 worth of jewellery.

Both couples then left the store at around 12.05pm with three rings - an 18ct yellow gold bow-shaped diamond-encrusted ring, an 18ct yellow gold diamond ring with two inset diamonds set into white gold and an 18ct yellow gold pear-shaped diamond ring with two diamonds either side, plus a sovereign pendant and a yellow gold and diamond bracelet.

Police have released CCTV images of the four offenders and investigating officer PC Shaun Woods said: "I would like to speak to anyone who recognises those pictured as we believe they could help us with information that could prove crucial to our investigation."
