Two Bailed Over Jewellery Theft

Two men have been released on bail by police investigating the theft of thousands of pounds worth of jewellery.

Last weekend, £80,000 worth of jewellery was stolen from a warehouse in the Moyraverty Road West area of Craigavon. It is understood the burglary occurred sometime between 10pm on Saturday and 7.45am on Sunday.

The Christmas stock belonged to jewellery firm Argento.

Its founder, Peter Boyle, has offered a reward of £15,000 to anyone who can provide relevant information leading to the recovery of the stock.

On Thursday, following a number of searches in the Craigavon area, police arrested two men, aged 41 and 63, on suspicion on burglary.

They have since been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
