Local residents and businesses are being asked to help police with any information that can help them to catch the others involved in the raid. 

A Rebecca’s Jewellers spokesperson said: “We are saddened to share that yesterday evening we were targeted by thieves. As of yet we do not know the full extent of the damage they have caused, the police are currently carrying out their investigations.

“During this time there will be a disturbance to our usual opening hours, however we are still contactable for anything urgent.

“Thank you for all of the kind messages of support. They are very much appreciated.” 

Local people showed their support to Rebecca’s Jewellers on Facebook.

A man was arrested following the burglary in Southport last night.  

At around 9pm officers were called to a report of a burglary at a jewellers on Lord Street.

A group of males on motorbikes forced entry into the premises and stole a large quantity of jewellery from the building.

A 43-year-old man from Liverpool was arrested on suspicion of burglary after officers stopped one of the offenders who fled the scene towards London Street.

The man remains in custody as enquiries continue.

A large police scene was put in place on Lord Street whilst officers conducted forensic examinations and reviewed CCTV footage.

Detective Chief Inspector Gayle Rooney said: “Thanks to a member of the public who called us as soon as this incident took place our officers were able to make a prompt arrest.  

“The investigation is in its early stages and we will be reviewing all CCTV locally and speaking to business owners and anyone with information. If you were in the area and saw or heard anything, please let us know.

“Whilst we are establishing exactly what was stolen, I would ask if any individuals or businesses have been or are offered jewellery in Merseyside or surrounding areas in the coming days and have any suspicions as to their origin, please get in contact.

“This would be a distressing and inconvenient experience for any business and we will act on all information to find those responsible and bring them to justice.”
