    • This is the dramatic moment an armed robber, disguised as a Muslim woman in a burka, blagged his way into a jewellery store, and was followed by three accomplices who stole £30,000 of valuables in a gems raid.

He rang the bell of the Burnley store posing as a female customer, but as he was let in by unsuspecting staff, three of his gang followed wielding a rifle, sword and baseball bats.

They began smashing up the glass display cabinets and made off with their haul.

  1. Independent of their crime, these perpetrators may actually be helping the politically-correctly-challenged to think clearly on the issue of Islamic full face covering in public, similar to the association we all have on things like balaclavas on the street.

  2. There has to be a mohammed among them.

    Ah yes, there is one. Highway robbery and paedophilia is one of the characteristics that is to be emulated by the followers of the one and true mohammed.
