TWO thieves have ad­mit­ted break­ing into a char­ity shop and caus­ing thou­sands of pounds of dam­age.

Christo­pher Arthur Carter, 42, and Steven Se­bas­tian Teszke, 36, bur­gled the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion on Mill Street, Mac­cles­field, on June 6.

They stole jew­ellery, cash and elec­tri­cal goods and caused dam­age val­ued be­tween £3,000 and £4,000.

At Mac­cles­field mag­is­trates’ court on June 7, Teszke, of Lon­don Road, Mac­cles­field, and Carter of Duke Street, Mac­cles­field, both ad­mit­ted bur­glary. Carter also ad­mit­ted pos­sess­ing a shot­gun car­tridge.

DC Shane Owens from Mac­cles­field Po­lice said: “The two of­fend­ers forced their way into the shop and then made a very messy search which caused a lot of dam­age.

“They then stole items do­nated by the peo­ple of the town and were be­ing sold to sup­port the char­ity.”
