BURGLARS stole jewellery and a car from a shop in Bolton on Friday.

At around 2.15am on Friday, November 19, police were called to reports of a burglary at a jewellers on Brackley Street, Farnworth.

Enquiries have established that two men forced entry, causing damage to the shop front.

They made off in a red Suzuki with a quantity of jewellery.

Kinners Jewellers said: "A shop is broken into every single night here.

"I'm sick of it, especially because I put down a lot of money to have the alarms directed to the police station, but the alarm was faulty.

"As soon as there is a break on the glass, it should go straight to the station, so now I am having to pay out more for new systems."

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.

The owner said: "Every time you turn up to work in the morning you hear someone else has been broken into.

"Yet there are no police patrols and when they do get caught, nothing happens to them. I am retiring soon, but I feel sorry for up-coming businesses because this is happening too often.

"They're talking about regeneration but how can they spend millions on that when they can't even keep existing business in Farnworth safe?"

Kinners Jewellers has been broken into on two other occasions in the past, but never from the shop front side before.

They said: "It's a shame that nothing is being done about it. Even on the Facebook community group, every single day there are reports of a burglary in Farnworth and especially on Brackley Street.

"The new alarms will hopefully stop it for us but we shouldn't have to go this far."

On Facebook, one commenter said: "I don't see why they can't pay for a security guard to watch the shops from when the shop shuts until the next morning as they have paid for these flats to be built.

"Pay for something that is useful and maybe these businesses won't get broken into, to just a thought."

In 2019, police promised to patrol the area due to the high number of break-ins as well as in June of this year due to anti-social behaviour.
