THIEVES who made holes in the walls of six establishments to get into a jewellery shop in Toledo took all of the gold and most of the watches from the shop.
The Iranian owners of the family business are still estimating the value of the stolen jewellery but have since opened to the public to sell “what wasn’t taken”, mainly silver.
They don’t know if their insurance will cover the total value of the amount stolen and have no suspects as they say that all kinds of people visit the shop.
To get to the safe in their shop, the thieves had to pass through two banks, where alarms reportedly were not set off, and a mobile phone shop.
National Police say the thieves, who made 15 holes with ‘perfect precision’, were obviously more interested in the jewellery and knew perfectly where to find it.
It appears it took them all weekend to carry out the crime and they may have had an apartment in the area, as well access to the plans of the buildings.
