£40,000 worth of stock stolen during Ram Raid

A 38 year old male has been arrested following an investigating into a ram raid at Flannels on George Street, Altrincham which occurred at around 12.30AM on Friday 1st February.

Around £40,000 worth of stock was taken including handbags worth £1,000 each and Canada Goose coats worth over £800 per item.

Reports suggest that a grey Toyota Aygo rammed into the shop window. While a white Ford Transit van and a Blue Audi A4 were also involved. Before the offenders ran in and stole the items, the thieves then drove off using the van and Audi leaving the Toyota behind.

Greater Manchester Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the robbery and are appealing for CCTV footage that shows any part of the incident.

Detective Inspector Dave Jones from Greater Manchester Police commented

“This was a significant robbery with goods costing thousands of pounds stolen. A robbery of this magnitude could considerably damage the business”

Ram-Raids are a common occurrence. Already in 2019 a Jeweller in Sheffield was ram-raided. CCTV showed a stolen vehicle plowing into the store window, twice! Read the full story here.
