A 39-year-old homeless man was arrested following a burglary by a group of men at Pandora in the Dolphin Shopping Centre at around 9.30pm on Sunday 15 August.
It is alleged that the men forced entry to an area behind Kingland Crescent, before entering the shop and stealing a large quantity of jewellery.
Officers attended and it is reported that the group ran away toward the railway line.
Following the arrest of the man, the remaining members of the group allegedly got into a dark-coloured people carrier vehicle that was parked nearby in Sainsbury’s car park in Pitwines Close and drove off from the area.
A quantity of the jewellery has been recovered.
Police Constable Sarah Hodgson, of Dorset Police’s Priority Crime Team, said: “I am appealing to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area around the relevant time to please come forward.
“I would urge motorists to please check their dashcams for any footage that may assist my enquiries.”
