Two men have stolen thousands of dollars’ worth of jewellery and watches after smashing their way into D & G Jewellery less than a year after it opened.

The men were caught on CCTV breaking into the shop on Byron Street at 4:15am Tuesday.

Co-owner Greg Irwin has been working in the location since the 1980s, but he decided to open his own business in the shop only 9 months ago.

He says the last time the store was broken into was more than a decade ago and he’s thankful the culprits couldn’t get any further into the store.”

“They’ve stolen about five to six thousand dollars’ worth of silver- and gold-plated product. There is special glass on the window which means they weren’t able to get inside the shop,” he said,

Photos of the men have been released and police are appealing to anyone who has any information to come forward.
