Budding Sherlock, Tiago helps police apprehend fleeing gold thief!

AMSS Cleaning Supervisor Tiago Leao has been put forward for a staff commendation, earlier this month there was a snatch and grab at Ramsden’s jewellery shop, Tiago happened to be passing and heard the staff screaming. Tiago saw the young guy shoot from the unit and was able to follow him while passing on a good description to our control who then passed the details onto the police.

Because Tiago was able to give the direction of travel the police were able to catch the youth and recover the jewellery, Ramsdens are very happy and are also putting Tiago in for a commendation.

Justin Bibby, North Cumbria Territorial Policing Area Superintendent wrote to Tiago saying:

“On behalf of Cumbria Constabulary and the manager of Ramsdens in Carlisle, I would like to thank you most sincerely for your assistance in coming to the aid of Ramsdens staff after hearing their shouts for help after a male was suspected of stealing and making off with a high value gold necklace which took place on Tuesday afternoon 15th September 2015. Your contribution was invaluable and resulted in the suspect being arrested and subsequently charged with a number of offences, The gold necklace was also recovered and returned to Ramsdens. Thank you again for your initiative and public spirited actions for which I commend you.” 

The staff at Ramsdens showed their appreciation and presented their hero, Tiago with a bottle of Whiskey which was accepted with a smile.

Well done Tiago for going the extra mile from all at AMSS – One Team, One Goal
