Ipswich: Mopeds Found After Armed Robbery

Police say they've recovered two mopeds thought to have been used in an armed robbery on a jewellers in Ipswich.

Thieves armed with hammers and axes tried to smash their way into the shop on the Buttermarket on Monday evening.

One of the staff members at the jewellers saw the people driving slowly on the mopeds towards the shop from the direction of Queens Street.

Fearing they were about to be raided they alerted her colleagues and security procedures were activated and the alarm was raised, forcing the thieves to leave empty handed.

After appeals to find the men a member of the public called police to report that two Vespa mopeds had been found parked in Dillwyn Street, Ipswich.

The mopeds have been recovered by officers who say initial checks show them as stolen from the London area.

Police are now renewing their appeal to find the men who are described by police as:

  • The rider of the red moped was wearing a full face helmet and a dark coloured padded jacket.
  • The passenger of this moped wore a light coloured full face helmet and carried a bag with a motif over their shoulder.
  • The rider of the light moped wore a dark full face helmet and wore dark clothing.
  • The passenger of this moped wore a white full face helmet and also had a bag over their shoulder with a motif on.
