GMP Wigan West
We have been made aware of a group of shoplifters who have been targeting Robin Retail Park.These shoplifters have committed multiple offences daily and offenders have been working together to steal items from stores. On several occasions, these offenders have used violence and been verbally abusive towards staff. Staff employed at the shops on Robin Retail Park do not deserve to be abused and assaulted when at work, and store prices could rise if offenders continue to steal goods. Because of this, J relief neighbourhood team have been working to bring these offenders to justice and to protect the stores and their workers. Two offenders have been arrested in the past week.Josh ANDRUSJAK, no fixed abode, has been charged with seven incidents of shoplifting from Superdrug and Boots and one incident of robbery from Superdrug, amounting to over £700. Josh HUGHES, no fixed abode, has been charged with four incidents of shoplifting from Asda and TK Maxx, amounting to over £100. The remainder of the offenders will be caught and prosecuted in due course.
