Queenstown Police investigating burglary

"Queenstown Police investigating burglary "

Attribute to Detective Sergeant Derek Shaw:

Police are investigating the burglary of a Queenstown jewellery store overnight.

The store on Grant Road in the Five Mile Shopping Complex was broken into at around midnight, and a significant number of expensive men’s watches were stolen, along with a computer and cash.

Police are following strong lines of enquiry with regard to identifying the offender.

We believe the offender may have travelled to the Southland area following the burglary, potentially travelling in a red Toyota vehicle, registration LQL818.

Police attempted to stop this vehicle in the Dipton area in the early hours of the morning.
The driver failed to stop and was briefly pursued by Police, however the pursuit was abandoned due to the manner of driving and speed of the vehicle.

If you have seen this vehicle, or have information which could help us locate the person responsible for the burglary, please contact Queenstown Police on 03 441 1600.

Information can also be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Police are also urging people to be wary of anyone offering watches for sale - if you are approached or see information online regarding watches for sale, please give us a call.
