A brazen thief snatched two rings at a jeweller’s shop in Wrexham.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the incident, which happened at Ernest Jones in Hope Street at about 5.15pm yesterday.

A man entered the shop and asked to look at some rings. As he was being shown some rings at the rear of premises he grabbed two silver solitaire diamond rings and ran out of shop, turning towards Regent Street.

He is described as white, about 5ft 6ins tall and between 25 and 35-years-of-age. He was wearing a dark jacket, a green T-shirt, black shorts, white trainers and a black baseball cap.

No threats were made, no weapons were produced and no one was hurt.
