Edinburgh Jewellers thieves try to sell £20,000 Rolex’s in Edinburgh Pub

This is laughable as it is nasty. This is the pub I used to drink in as a teenager, I lived 2 stairs/blocks to the right of this Pub, this is Muirhouse Edinburgh. I hear some lad went into the Gunner pub above and tried to sell £20,000 Rolex watches for £200, I am told he was laughed out the door and also seen on Camera. This isn’t an area of town you grass (Tell the police) on anyone, it’s not worth your life. I find it hilarious because this is one dumb chap, this area is littered with CTV Camera’s, he will be known to the police and probably caught by the time tonight is over. Idiot 😀 Although I do feel for the Jeweller he stole from in town

THE desperate seller made his pitch in The Gunner, a pub made famous in Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting novel that made the big screen. A chancer tried to sell Rolex watches for £100 hours after an armed raid on a posh jewellers in Edinburgh. The seller made his pitch in The Gunner – made famous in Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting novel. One local said: “No one could believe it. You’d think if it was connected to the robbery he’d have waited until things calmed down.”

Laing’s in the city centre was robbed by a man with a handgun shortly after 9.30am on Monday. The robber hijacked a private hire cab and forced the driver to take hom to the north of the city. A massive police investigation is under way to find the thief. A resident living near the pub in Muirhouse said: “The guy was in The Gunner on Monday trying to sell Rolex watches. Some found it amusing and others told him to go away.

“Height of stupidity when the place was crawling with cops looking for an armed robber. “We didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at the price.” Rolex watches can retail for up to £20,000. It’s not known whether the watches were from Monday’s raid or if anyone bought one. The source said: “Smacks of desperation selling them for £100 and clearly not a professional. Everyone was laughing.” A man and a woman were yesterday released without charge after being detained by police in connection with the robbery.
