Police are asking for residents to keep their eyes open for four unique rings following the burglary of a jewellery shop in Sidmouth.
The appeal has come after CCTV footage was released showing the culprit entering JBM Jewellers around 3.30am on Monday, January 19.
The burglar, a white male who was wearing a coat with a hoodie underneath and a baseball cap, smashed in the front door to the shop, in Church Street, using a thick granite slab.
The granite, which is believed to have come from the grounds of Sidmouth Parish Church, was left at the scene.
Once inside, the culprit smashed some of the cabinets before taking a quantity of gold jewellery.
