A LAD in a face mask legs it after carrying out a daylight robbery at a jewellery store.

Two men wearing coronavirus protectors entered Adairs jewellery store in Ballymena, Co Antrim, shortly after 1.10pm today.

They grabbed trays of jewellery and fled the store on foot — but were snapped as they attempted to make their getaway.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of theft shortly after the robbery.

Cops are still hunting for the other hoodie-wearing suspect.

The PSNI said: “The second male is described as being 6ft in height and ­wearing a red and black jacket, black tracksuit bottoms with white stripes and a white surgical mask covering over his face.

“He is believed to have made off towards the Broadway Avenue area following the incident.”

This is just one example of how criminals can exploit the mandatory use of face masks in order to commit more theft. We will see an increase in crimes in retail more than ever. Stores that don’t currently have security will be forced to employ guards to act as a visual deterrent and to stop thieves in line with the SIA’s guidelines.

We can provide your Store, Supermarket or Retail Complex with a complete range of Security Services including Uniformed Front of Store Officers and specialised Store Detectives to protect your goods and services.
