Nelson house burglar was 'spooked'
2:31pm Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
A BURGLAR smashed his way through a double-glazed window of a house, in Edith Street, Nelson, piled up items in the kitchen and garden, ready to take them, and then left without them.
Sgt Shaun Pearson, of Pendle Police, said: “Often thieves will stack up what they want to steal and then come back the next day with a van, wearing a high- visibility jacket to make themselves look like they have a legitimate reason to be there.
“It looks like they might have been planning to do this here, but we believe they have been spooked.”
The incident happened overnight between last Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Anybody who heard, or saw anything suspicious, should call police on 101.
