GARDAÍ IN DONEGAL have appealed to the public for information after a significant amount of jewellery and cash was stolen from a business in Letterkenny last weekend.

The theft happened when four women and a man entered a business on Upper Main Street in the town at around 4.30pm on Saturday 18 January.

During the incident, a number of individuals distracted staff, while one of the women gained entry to a back office.

Cash and jewellery was stolen, including an 18-carat white gold oval yellow sapphire cluster ring, nine 18-carat gold rings and two 9-carat gold rings.

An antique sovereign case with a matching chain, a rare antique round vesta case, a rare antique rose gold plain locket set with old cut diamonds, a rare 9-carat antique rose gold ‘paper link’ chain, and six antique bar brooches were also among the items stolen.

All of those who entered the property are believed to have arrived and left together in a blue Ford S-Max car.

Local investigators are liaising with the PSNI and other divisions on the incident.

Gardaí say they are eager to track the movements of the blue Ford car and believe it may have also driven through Derry and Dublin.

Anyone who may have seen a vehicle matching this description and acting suspiciously in their locality has been asked to contact gardaí in Letterkenny on 074 916 7100, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
