Stockport Express - - News -

BURGLARS stole a dis­tinc­tive Greek-style hel­met in a house break-in.

The replica Corinthi­an­era hel­met and other valu­ables, worth a to­tal of £3,000, were taken from a house on Ash­burn Road in Heaton Nor­ris, Stock­port.

Po­lice said Christ­mas has been ‘ru­ined’ for the vic­tims.

The hel­met was part of a set which also fea­tured a breast and back plate.

They were found aban­doned in the back gar­den.

Po­lice are now ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses amid fears the property taken could be of­fered for sale on the black mar­ket.

The bur­glary took place be­tween 2.15pm and 10.30pm on De­cem­ber 19.

A tele­vi­sion, a lap­top, two dig­i­tal cam­eras, a bi­cy­cle, a mo­bile phone, a games con­sole and the replica hel­met were taken in the raid.

Pc Joel Massender said: “Bur­glary is an in­cred­i­bly in­tru­sive crime and those re­spon­si­ble have ru­ined the vic­tim’s Christ­mas with their self­ish and rep­re­hen­si­ble ac­tions.”

Call po­lice on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 191215/2698 or Crimes­top­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.
