Police search for thieves who stole 190 Christmas trees from shop
Police appeal after 190 Christmas trees stolen from shop, putting the business 'in jeopardy'.
Police are appealing for information after 190 Christmas trees were stolen from a shop in Greater Manchester.
CCTV of the incident apparently shows at least two offenders stealing trees at the Khawja Brothers Mini Market on Manchester Road in Chorlton on two occasions between Saturday 28 November and Monday 30 November.
Detective Constable Trudy Lindsey of South Manchester division said:
The shop owners were devastated to discover that 190 of their Christmas trees had been stolen. This is their livelihood and the offenders selfishly put their business in jeopardy. The van has been spotted in Chorlton since, offering people Christmas trees. If you are offered one to buy I would ask that you contact police immediately. If you recognise the men in the CCTV, please get in touch with us and help us to catch those responsible.Trudy Lindsey, GMP Police
