BURGLARS have stolen rare and distinctive sports memorabilia.
Signed football shirts and boxing gloves were among the haul of goods stolen during the daytime break-in.
Items taken included a Manchester United home shirt signed by the whole team, a Chelsea Football Club shirt also signed by the entire squad, a red boxing glove signed by Joe Calzaghe, a red boxing glove signed by Ricky Hatton, Dolce & Gabbana clothing, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Burberry sunglasses, Marc Jacobs sunglasses and a black Samsung 62in TV. Keys for two cars were also taken along with house keys.
The raiders smashed display cases on the wall to get at signed memorabilia. They are believed to have left on foot.
The break-in happened between 11.35am and noon on Friday, October 11. Det Sgt Denise Pye, from Bolton North Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “A number of expensive items were stolen and amongst them were two football shirts, which were sports memorabilia.
“These items are obviously of sentimental and monetary value and I would urge anyone who has been offered these for sale, or knows anything about their location, or who committed the burglary to please contact the police or Crimestoppers.”
Anyone who is offered the items is being urged to call police. Call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
