Young woman robs jewellery shop

An attractive young, blonde-haired woman, smartly dressed and said to be well educated, snatched 30 gold rings in a jewellery shop in Portimão after pretending to be a potential customer. While the shop assistant’s attention was diverted by somebody else entering the shop, the thief, about 20 years of age, took the rings from a showcase and fled through the door. She escaped in a car with an alleged accomplice. According to police, two similar thefts occurred last Monday in Loulé and Lagoa by a couple who feigned interest in purchasing gold items.
