Toddler helps find

Sometimes police help to recover stolen diamond rings but rarely to toddlers get involved in the action. However, breaking from the norm, youngster Toby Braithwaite recently helped to restore such jewellery to its rightful owner following a shop raid, the Westmorland Gazette reports.

The three-year-old spotted the gem in an alleyway next to Kendal Goldsmiths a few minutes after two criminals had entered the shop and taken the items from the counter.

When he came across the piece he was with his mother, Rachel, and his brother in the centre of Kendal. The crime scene was still set and police cars were parked around the area. As the family passed the shop, Toby said “Mummy look” and they saw a ring lying on the ground with its store label still on it.

After making their discovery, they returned the gleaming item to the shop.

To reward him for his keen eyesight and honesty, the shop managers reciprocated the kind gesture by sending the child a blue bike.

Joint owner of the retail unit Andrew Dawson said: “It was great that the young lad handed this over. I thought there was nothing from the shop that a child would like so I wondered what I would have wanted at three, so I got the bike.”

Since the incident, a 32-year-old man pleaded guilty to shoplifting, driving a vehicle without insurance and making off without paying for petrol. Magistrates heard that he carried out the crime because he owed money to a loan shark.

Because of the value of the diamond rings and other objects they contain, jewellers often have to have special security measures in place. Some opt to place security guards on their doors. But despite their best efforts, sometimes these procedures are breached by thieves intent on taking their offerings.he was with his mother, Rachel, and his brother in the centre of Kendal.
