Jewellers in Donegal Town robbed overnight

There’s been a jewellery robbery in Donegal town overnight.

Thieves who broke into the Cameo jewellers in the Supervalu shopping arcade escaped with a large quantity of jewellery, including gold chains and watches.

They broke in through a PVC panel and through a bathroom window before pilfering the most valuable items.

The owner believes they must have been a couple of hours there, because they chose only the most expensive items, discarding cheaper goods.

Gardai at Donegal town, 074 972 0121, are seeking evidence of any witnesses who may have noticed anything unusual in the area.

No value has been put on the haul so far. The owner is still preparing an inventory for gardai but several watches worth more than €5,000 were stolen
