A woman pretending to be a customer and four accomplices fled with an undisclosed amount of jewellery after robbing a store in Kirstenhof, Cape Town, on Thursday

At around 11:00 on Thursday, the owner of the jewellery shop was busy with a customer when he heard the shop bell ring, according to the police.

He saw a woman standing at the gate and buzzed her in.
