Motorcycle robbers take £2 million in 39 seconds

Published: 24 August 2009

Dramatic CCTV images of a smash-and-grab robbery of a London jewellery store have been released showing six robbers on three motorcycles taking £2m of jewels.

The six thieves rode a KTM Super Duke along with two others – a KTM 690SM and a third unknown bike.

They smashed their way into the Mozafarian jewellers opposite Harrods in Knightsbridge before making off with £2m of jewels including one necklace worth £500,000.

One of the robbers smashed the glass door with a sledgehammer before the gang entered and broke open cabinets in a raid that lasted just 39 seconds.

The robbers were unable to break their way into one display case containing a further £3million of gems.

Scotland Yard is appealing for anyone with any information about the raid to call Barnes Flying Squad on 020-8247 4804 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
