Cold hearted thieves are going around the Sale area robbing Christmas Santas and decorations from gardens.
We first got reports yesterday (13 December 2019) of one garden that had been targeted, a special santa that the owners have had for a decade was stolen, the owners who live in a bungalow and do not wished to be named said: “We had the santa for ten years and the grandkids and the community enjoyed seeing it and it brought Christmas cheer to the area.”
Another garden also had Christmas stuff pinched in recent days in the Sale area, it could be the same people doing this.
We ask people to report anything that has been stolen to police on 101 or use the chat facility on the website, the more people do this the better as police will see that their is an issue and will be more likely to investigate.
If you have been a victim of this crime please also contact us, if you have CCTV of anyone robbing items from gardens anywhere in Trafford please send us this and any pictures you may have.
We hope the santa pictured is returned to the owner, for us we have never seen one like this before! after all the Tory gloom that will continue for another five years Christmas should be about good things and we hope those that stole the Santa will give it back.
