POLICE have released CCTV images of a man after rings worth an estimated £40,000 were snatched from a Bicester jeweller last month.
At 3.40pm on Thursday, April 5, the man entered a jeweller in Sheep Street and asked to try on two rings.
Once they were on his finger, he ran out of the shop and into Victoria Road, where he got into a dark blue Ford Mondeo car and sped off.
The stocky white man is aged in his mid-thirties and is around 6ft tall, with short brown hair. He was wearing a dark blue jumper, checked shirt and dark trousers.
The first ring has a round diamond with a yellow tint set in six claws, and is valued at £9,000.
The second has a round diamond in six claws and is valued at £32,000.
Images were released on Monday. Police say the store does not want to reveal its identity. Anyone with information should contact Thames Valley Police on 101 and ask to speak to PC Tina Maulson.
