It happened in Upper Brook Street at approximately 4.30pm last Thursday (1st May).

Two women entered the jewellery shop and both tried on various items of jewellery.  Whilst the shop assistant was distracted, one of the women reached into a cabinet and stole a tray of rings and placed them within her bag.  The other woman paid for an item and both left the store.  It was then noticed that the tray of rings was missing.
