Diamond necklace stolen in Camberley jewellery con

A £2,000 diamond and ruby necklace has been stolen from a 74-year-old woman waiting at a bus stop in Surrey.

She was approached by two women in London Road, Camberley, on Sunday.

One tried wrapping a gold chain around her wrist and put a ring on her finger, while the other placed a cheap-looking, gold coloured chain around her neck.

They asked for money but she refused. After fiddling with the items the women left saying she could keep them, and later she found her necklace had gone.

Gold teeth

Police said the suspects were both described as possibly being Nepalese.

The woman who put the chain on the victim's wrist was said to have been about 5ft 9in tall, of a large build, with black hair and several gold teeth.

She was wearing a long, black skirt with gold detail up the side.

The second woman was described as 5ft 6in tall, of a large build, with black hair.

Det Con Chris Woolford, of Surrey Police, described it as "a crafty trick" which showed the lengths some offenders would go to in order to target their victims.
