Description

Police have released CCTV images of two men who broke into a tanning shop and stole several thousand pounds worth of equipment. Between 2.30am and 3am on Monday 9th June 2014, two men, one on foot and one on a bicycle, approached Hollywood Tanning on Great Ancoats Street in the City Centre. The pair flung several items at the glass front of the shop in an attempt to gain entry, before finally shattering the glass front door and entering the shop. Once inside, they stole a digital camera, a stereo and other electronic equipment valued at £2,000. The first offender is described as white, of very slim build and wearing a woolly hat and striped t-shirt. The other man was white, also of slim build and wearing dark tracksuit bottoms and a grey jacket with his hood up. Constable Matthew Walker said: “This pair were brazen in their attempts to gain entry into the property, willing to cause any amount of damage in order to get what they wanted. “They seem to have no idea that they were being filmed, however, and we have some good shots of the two of them in the act. “If you recognise either of the two men in the pictures, please contact us. “They might have thought a tanning shop was a safe target, but we are hopeful that with the evidence we have, their fingers will get burnt.” Anyone with information should phone police on 0161 856 3983 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
