Jewellers in Southport Ram Raided and vehicle set on fire

MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed Officers investigating a robbery at David Search Jewellers, on Lord Street, Southport, have now reopened the road. Officers were called at around 4.40pm, on Thursday, 23 November 2017, after a Landrover Defender was used to ram the premises. We are told that the suspects then left on motorcycles having set the vehicle alight. Thankfully no persons are believed to have been injured, but it has shaken up many shoppers and businesses who had waitressed it and its aftermath.  A full investigation is now underway.  CCTV from the local area is being requested, as well as any mobile phone footage or dash cam footage. Should you have any information or footage, please contact Merseyside Police on:- 101 or the Crimestoppers line anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.

Detective Inspector Robbie Moss said:- "At this early stage of the investigation we are looking for any information on the movements of a convoy of vehicles before, during and after this brazen robbery. We believe that the Landrover Defender and three motorbikes came onto Lord Street from Bold Street before carrying out the offence, which would have been frightening to witness. If you were passing on foot or in a vehicle, and have any images, video or dashcam footage, get in touch as any small piece of evidence could be crucial to identifying those responsible and putting them before the courts. Likewise, if any individuals or businesses have been offered jewellery or watches in the Southport or surrounding areas since yesterday and have any suspicions as to their origin, do the right thing and get in contact. This robbery happened at a busy time on a main street, so we are also hopeful that in addition to CCTV and witnesses, we may also find people who saw the motorbikes making off down Lord Street and turning onto Duke Street after the offence. If you saw 3 bikes being ridden at speed, dumped or stored elsewhere, let us know."

From what we have been told by people in the area, this was one of the most dangerous robberies, in Southport, in living memory. So if anyone is offered watches or jewellery they think might be from this raid, do get in touch urgently with the Police… Also if you have any other information, please also contact the Police.

Photos taken just after the incident, were snapped by Fatima Silva. The other photos have been taken by our Editor Patrick Trollope.
