While I am sorry for G.H. Pressley & Sons Jewellers, and for the damage caused during the robbery, your reporter seems to be confusing the retail value of the items stolen with their actual worth.

the cost of this burglary is far more in the long term than the trade value of the goods stolen and the cost of repairs. Insurers these days insist on very expensive anti robbery/theft security measures, no doubt these were in place, they do not come cheap but following any incident of this nature the insures will increase the premiums by a significant amount, G.H. Pressley & Sons will carry the continued cost of this burglary for a good number of years to come. however they left a clue, just look for burglars with no appreciation of fine silverware but a liking for over rated, over priced chav fashion jewelry with so many fakes around its impossible to tell the real thing
