A man who stole almost £40,000 worth of luxury jewellery from a high street shop has been jailed.
Timothy Sullivan, of Limbourne Avenue, Dagenham and two others were involved in the brazen day-time raid at Enerst Jones in Exeter.
They managed to grab the Fope jewels - worth £38,500 - from a locked cabinet without shop staff noticing, but were caught on CCTV.
A police investigation was launched and Sullivan was arrested and later pleaded guilty to theft.
On Friday the 48-year-old was sentenced to two years in prison at Exeter Crown Court.
