Thieves make off with high end jewelry
On Wednesday February 15, at approximately 3:30 pm a gold bracelet valued at $1800 was stolen from a north end jewelry store.
The two suspects entered the business and asked the lone clerk to remove various pieces of jewelry from the display case. While the clerk was distracted, one of the suspects pocketed the bracelet. The theft was not realized until the two had left the business.
The suspects were of Eastern European descent and had strong accents. Both were dressed all in black and one wore a traditional Russian fur hat with flaps that fold down. One suspect was approximately sixty; the other in his 30's and they said they were father and son.
It was later confirmed the two had visited several other jewelry stores throughout the day in Nanaimo.
