Cheshire Police are appealing for information after a charity shop was burgled for the second time in a week.

Sometime between 5.30pm on Saturday 30 September and 11.45pm on Monday 2 October thieves targeted an Age UK charity shop on Witton Street, Northwich.

The offender, or offenders, smashed a window at the front of the store to force entry and then stole a quantity of cash which had been donated to the store after the first burglary.

That burglary took place between 5.30pm on Saturday 23 September and 8.00am on Monday 25 September and a quantity of cash and a Samsung Galaxy J3 mobile phone was stolen.

Chief Inspector Simon Meegan said: “For the charity shop to be targeted twice in a week shows that the offenders have no regard for the harm they are doing to the community.

“We are committed to doing everything to bringing those responsible for this despicable incident to justice.

“Age UK is one of the UK’s leading charities and is dedicated to helping people make the most of later life. I urge anyone with any information this incident to contact the team here at Northwich so that those responsible can be brought to justice.”

Anyone with information about the incident should call police on 101 quoting incident number 947 of 01/10/2107 or incident number 137 of 25/9/2017.
