Rising gold prices prompt more robberies in London
A pawnbroker plans to share information with the police about gold and suspicious goods brought to its stores.
The agreement between the Met and Cash Converters, which has 169 shops in London, came as the price of gold crossed £1,023 an ounce.
There has been a "rise in snatch thefts" of jewellery and some cash for gold shops reported receiving "blood-stained gold necklaces", police said.
Asian women have been asked to be vigilant and not to display jewellery.
