Pair admit charity shop raid
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.
Both were remanded in custody to appear at Chester Crown Court on July 5 for sentencing.
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.”
