A sentencing hearing for a man and two women who stole £13,000 worth of jewellery from a shop in Bury St Edmunds earlier this year had been adjourned until next month.

Before Ipswich Crown Court on Thursday ( May 23) were Radu Niculescu, 29, and two women both named Loredana Sava, aged 31 and 34 who have all admitted theft from Romark Jewellers in Abbeygate Street, Bury St Edmunds, on February 17.

The court heard on an earlier occasion that they “tricked” the jewellers into the loss of some £13,000 worth of items.

The trio, all of Pembroke Avenue in Luton, were arrested on February 25 when police attended their home.

Judge Richard Kelly adjourned sentence on the three defendants, who are all in custody, until June 21.
