Burglary in Wigan
Tuesday 6th August, 2013

A house was broken into in Wigan.

Between 4pm and 5.30pm on Thursday 1 August 2013, the offenders went to the back of a house on Leader Street in Scholes through a gate and forced open the back door.

They searched the property and took various items including around 50 CDs, jewellery, watches and a Kindle. There was no one in the house at the time of the burglary.

Police are appealing for information and witnesses.

Detective Constable Danny Ritchie said: "This burglary happened in broad daylight. If you were in the area and remember seeing anything suspicious that could be relevant to this burglary please get in touch with the police.

"At this stage it is not known how many offenders there are or whether they used a vehicle but we know they attempted to get in through the front door before eventually getting in through the back, so someone may have seen them tampering with the door.

"We would also ask anyone who is offered anything for sale in suspicious circumstances to get in touch. As well as CDs, a Led Zeppelin box set was stolen, a Kindle and various items of jewellery including watches, bracelets, a necklace and earrings."

Anyone with information should call police on 0161 856 7226 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
