Jackets stolen during robbery - Wigan
CCTV stills of men wanted in connection with robbery at Go Outdoors in Wigan

A number of waterproof jackets were stolen during a robbery at the Go Outdoors store on Caroline Street, Wigan, on Thursday 29 November 2007.

At about 11.40am, three offenders pulled up into the car park of the store in a green Ford Mondeo, registration number M771 FFW.

Two of the men walked into the shop posing as customers while the third lingered outside the automatic doors, keeping them open.

The two offenders then grabbed up to 17 waterproof jackets and ran out of the store, jumping over the entrance barrier in order to escape. All three then made off in the same car.

CCTV footage has been checked and the same three men were seen acting suspiciously at the store at about 3pm on Tuesday, 27 November 2007.

The two men who stole the jackets from inside the store were both wearing yellow high-visibility jackets. The first is described as white, in his late 20s, of slim build, about 5ft 8inches tall and wearing a black long-sleeved top with a hood and black tracksuit bottoms. The second man is described as white, in his early 30s, of stocky build, about 5ft 10inches tall and wearing a black short-sleeved t-shirt and black tracksuit bottoms.

The third offender is described as white and wearing dark clothing.

Police have now issued CCTV stills of the men taken on the day of the robbery and the day on which the men were seen acting suspiciously.

Anyone with information is asked to call Wigan Police on 0161 872 5050 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
