Kingston Thieves Hurl Luxury Watches At Police


As the old music hall song goes: "If you want to know the time, ask a policeman". The constabulary of Kingston upon Thames are particularly blessed with horological insight after being pelted with wristwatches. Thieves smashed into Fraser Hart Jewellers in Kingston's loveable Bentall Centre yesterday, grabbing £0.5 million-worth of jewellery. In what sounds like a scene from an Ealing comedy, the fleeing raiders then hurled several luxury timepieces at pursuing coppers. Four men have since been arrested, two remain at large, and much of the haul has been recovered. Image by Zefrog in the Londonist Flickr pool.
