CCTV images of two men have been released after vintage watches amounting to thousands of pounds were stolen in an early morning ram-raid.
Police would like to speak to the two men pictured following the raid, which took place at Andrew Charles Watch and Clockmakers in Little Wymondley at about 3am on Wednesday.
A jeep-type vehicle was used to ram metal shutters protecting the showroom located at the back of the building before thieves stole a haul of watches inside.
Det Con Steve Cook from the North Herts Local Crime Unit is investigating.
He said: “I am keen to trace the men pictured as they may have information which could assist with our investigation; if this is you, or you know who these men are then please contact me immediately.
You may also want to watch:
“I would also like to hear from anyone with information about this crime - no matter how insignificant it might seem - anyone who saw a jeep-type vehicle in the area around the time stated, or who has been offered a high-end watch for sale in suspicious circumstances.
“The offenders set off the alarms and would have made a considerable amount of noise during the break in – so would have attracted the attention of anyone in the area at the time or neighbours.”
