Mum left with £20,000 bill after burglars raid Kearsley home and steal car
A MOTHER-OF-TWO is facing a £20,000 bill after burglars raided her home during the night and stole her new car earlier this month.
Ainsley Jackson, aged 25, was left shocked after her 2013 white Vauxhall Astra was taken from her home in Lord Street, Kearsley, in the early hours of September 6.
Thieves stole both her car keys, her house keys, £30 in cash and the keys to her partner Mike Halligan’s van, although that was not taken.
The raid came only four weeks after Ms Jackson, had moved to the Lord Street house with son Asa, aged two, and daughter Kennadie, aged six,.
Ms Jackson is desperate for anyone with information to contact her or police as her insurance is unlikely to cover the cost of replacing the car, as a mix-up meant her door was left unlocked.
“I was shocked by the whole thing as we were in bed at the time,” said Ms Jackson. “If anyone has seen the car out there somewhere I would be so grateful if they could get in touch.
“We’ve lived here for only four weeks and I thought it was a good area — now we’re wondering whether we want to stay and we’re tied down to a 12-month rental agreement.”
Ms Jackson had fallen asleep on the sofa and thought her partner had locked the house when she woke up and went to go to bed.
New Astras can cost up to £20,000, and Ms Jackson’s insurance company may not pay out as the door was unlocked. She said some of the stolen items have since been found in a graveyard also in Lord Street.
