$2 million jewellery stolen in Melbourne

Victoria Police have appealed to the public for more information about a $2 million jewellery robbery at a Melbourne residence last month.

According to a Victoria Police spokesperson, ‘unknown offenders’ broke into the property in Brighton, a south-east suburb of Melbourne on 26 April and stole a safe that contained more than 50 pieces of jewellery.

Stolen items included multiple watches valued up to $150,000 each, Chopard diamonds and a $15,000 Cartier bracelet.

Detective senior constable Cameron Mitchelhill stated in media reports it was likely the offenders “knew what they were doing”.

“A lot of the items are quite high-end and unique - they would be recognisable if someone is to see them,” Mitchelhill added.

Detective senior constable Michelle Young told Jeweller that police have released images of the stolen jewellery in the hope members of the public may have information regarding their whereabouts.

“These items are unique and will therefore be difficult to offload,” Young confirmed.

The public have been encouraged to view the photos on Victoria Police’s website and contact Crime Stoppers if they recognise any of the items.
