Second burglary at charity shop
ATOWN centre charity shop has been burgled for the SECOND time in four weeks.
Hyndburn Stray Dogs in Need (HSDIN) on Whalley Road in Accrington was broken into at around 10.25pm on Sunday, November 25.
The offender stole money from a till and a whiskey jar and swiped a jar of coffee before leaving through the fire escape.
Charity bosses have posted CCTV of the break-in on their Facebook page and are appealing for information.
The Observer reported earlier this month how the shop was burgled by Claire Louise Townsend, 31, of Lee Street, Accrington, on November 1, causing more than £1,000 in damage.
She was jailed for six months.
Stephen Wood, a volunteer at HSDIN, said: “It’s getting too much now. I fell absolutely gutted. It’s one step forward and 100 steps back.
“[The latest thief] came in through the side window where the door is and stole money and a jar of coffee out of the kitchen.
“He also had a good rummage through everything we have got.”
Lancashire Police said no arrests have been made and anyone with information should call 101 quoting log number 0297 of November 26.
