Masked men rob Halliwell jewellers

THREE masked men armed with a large hammer broke into a Halliwell jewellers’ shop.


The men are believed to have used the hammer to smash the door of the shop, before breaking display cabinets to steal jewellery.


They targeted Nouman Jewellers, in Halliwell Road, at about 5.45pm this afternoon.


It is believed the owner and his two sons were inside when the robbery took place.


Hiki Khan, from the Special Pound Shop next door, said the owner had been “shocked and shaken” after the incident.


Mr Khan said: “I heard a really loud bang and went out saw the three guys running off.


“I was surprised and did worry what was going on, and then I found out they had stolen some stuff.”


A police spokesman said three people were believed to have forced their way into the shop by damaging the door.


It is not known how much was stolen.


Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.

Seems funny that Mr Khan next door heard a bang and ran outside (immediately???) and saw them running away, but how long did it take him to run outside from next door, because they had time to smash a few cabinets and grab the bounty before Mr Khan saw their backs?

I think I saw the people who robbed it, they were parked across the road on double yellows in a lambo for about a week prior to the robbery, casing the joint out. Lucky sods didn't even get a parking ticket!

To the Officers who attended this robbery and the Claims Investigator assigned to look into the subsequent, substantial Insurance claim - this was an inside job...LMAO....
Mr Khan would probably use the same guys to do his shop over if his stock was worth more than a pound per item...

Have you nothing to say about the article bullet, or the "idiots" that committed the crime, surely you must believe that the criminals are bigger idiots than the people on here doing nothing exept have their opinion? Speech is free but asian gold isn't, that crime will hit you in the pocket at some time, comments on here won't.

I meant all the people that were being slanderous. This is plainly obvious unless you are a moron that cannot see this.

That you didn't make clear and I quote "Nasty bunch of idiots as per usual. I
hope you all get done for slander". That quote maybe obvious for you to decipher but maybe you should be more critical of your own terminology before you criticise others, or they may also use the getout clause, "I didn't mean that slanderous remark, it's obvious what I meant". Just saying.

You are obviously one of those bombastic types that like to make long winded statements to try and make yourself look intelligent. I would suggest you either chill out or go and get laid, it might calm you down a bit.

And you sir are one of those types that says "all" but means nearly all, yet you question my intelligence? As for getting laid, well that just really does show the level of your intelligence you pervert.
