Briton caught in jewellery shop robbery

Police on Monday caught a 28-year-old British man suspected of robbing a jewellery store in Pécs early in the morning.

The burglary was taped by somebody with a mobile phone. The recording shows the burglar cutting through the safety bar with a power cutter and making a huge noise as pedestrians walk by.

He then broke the shop window and took about Ft 9 million worth of valuables.

Once he was caught, the accused confessed and showed police where he had put the jewels.
