Berhampur: In yet another major loot in the Silk City, miscreants have allegedly decamped with 400 gm of gold ornaments and Rs 1.5 lakh cash from a jewellery shop located at Badabazaar area late last night.

As per reports, the miscreants entered the Keshav jewellery shop through the iron ventilator on the fourth floor of the jewellery shop.

During the investigation, police found that the CCTV cameras were damaged by the miscreants. Probe into the loot is on and the burglars will be nabbed soon, said a police official.

In October, miscreants had decamped with 2.8 kg of gold ornaments from one Vinod Jewellers located at the same Badabazaar main road area by breaking open the shop’s iron chest.

Later, police busted the notorious looters' gang and arrested two persons involved in a series of burglaries and seized 540 gm gold, 100 gm silver, a car, an expensive bike and a scooty from their possession.

The members of the gang reportedly learnt different tricks of burglary by watching YouTube videos to commit crimes at different places of the town, a senior police official had said.

“The burglars have confessed to have committed 15 crimes so far. We have also seized some foreign currency-1400 Euros, apart from Rs 30,000 from their possession,” Berhampur Superintendent of Police (SP) Pinaki Mishra had said.
