A business owner in the Moorlands is appealing for the return of some items which have been stolen.
Camilla Gibson, owner of The Herb & Spice Co in Cheadle, has a shop in the town’s indoor market, not only selling a range of herbs and spices but also other items such as healing crystals.
It was some of the crystals she has on offer, including a Watermelon Fluorite and a Labradorite Tower, which were taken from her shop at some point on Saturday (August 14).
Camilla put an appeal out on social media for the return of the stolen items. She said: “Firstly, thank you to all the lovely people who came to visit my little shop and the incredible organisers of the fun day on Saturday.
“Unfortunately I had a few things stolen from my shop, one of them being a beautiful Watermelon Fluorite tower.
“It’s very unique and one of a kind, so should easily be recognised. Whoever has taken this lovely tower and the others, I don’t think any good karma would come from a stolen crystal, so please feel free to post it in the market postbox and no questions will be asked.
“I’m now having full CCTV put in and will have no problems naming and shaming if it happens again.”
Camilla further told the Times & Echo: “I have not had any information on the crystals but I’m hoping they’re returned.
“It’s not just the value of them it’s the item itself, they’re quite unique and any crystal lover will tell you how attached you get to them.
“They were to sell, they all have their own healing properties and some can be quite expensive so I like to make sure the customer buys the crystal that’s right for them and their own needs.”
Camilla added that she had reported the theft to the police and that the value of the items which were stolen amounted to around £34.
A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said: “Police were called at 1.05pm on Tuesday (August 17) to Market Place, High Street, in Cheadle, following reports of theft.
“Officers spoke to the victim who reported the theft of a number of crystals, worth around £40, from a stall at Cheadle Indoor Market on Saturday. Inquiries are ongoing.”
