Jewelled pasties stolen


Police say they have removed a crime scene guard from Truro city centre after an armed robbery at a jeweller.

Men wearing balaclavas carried out the raid at Michael Spiers Jewellers just before 10:00.

Police said a noxious substance was used in the raid and a handgun was found on the ground. A member of the public was believed to have been injured in the incident but his injuries were described as minor.

Insp Rick Milburn, of Devon and Cornwall Police, said the city centre was “slowly returning to normal”.

He also thanked the witnesses present during the incident, but appealed for any other members of the public who witnessed anything to contact police.

He said: “Even the smallest detail may help and could make a difference to this investigation.”
