A POLICE helicopter tracked a suspect today (Saturday) after a £1,000 gold ring was snatched from a Ryde jewellers shop.
It joined the search for a middle aged man after a woman assistant at Island Jewellers in the High Street was threatened and a man made off with the solid 9ct gold gentleman's ring.
Police were called to the recently opened shop soon after 10.30 this morning.
An armed response team and several police units, including the helicopter, were involved.
The shop was briefly closed while officers took a statement from the staff member, who was shocked but not injured.
A man was later arrested close to the town's All Saints' Church and was being questioned by police on suspicion of robbery.
The ring was recovered and police will be studying the shop's CCTV footage.
