POLICE have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in connection with the theft of jewellery in Chesterfield town centre.

At around 4pm on Saturday, February 4, a 48-year-old man was approached outside the Portland Hotel in Chesterfield town centre by three men who offered him a chain and rings.

They put a chain around the victim’s neck and asked him to buy it, but he declined. They then removed the victim’s own chain leaving the fake one in place.

The men were all between 20 and 30-years-old, they all wore black and were of Eastern European appearance.

Police would like to speak to the men in the images to help them with their inquiries.
