Police searching for Christmas tree thieves release CCTV

Police have released footage after almost 200 Christmas trees were stolen from a shop in Manchester.

In the CCTV a group of men are seen struggling to pull the trees out from a bundle at the Khawja Brothers Mini Market in Chorlton. Police say the theft happened on the 28th of November before the store was hit a second time. The van has since been seen in Chorlton selling Christmas trees.

The shop owners were devastated to discover that 190 of their Christmas trees had been stolen. This is their livelihood and the offenders selfishly put their business in jeopardy.

“The van has been spotted in Chorlton since, offering people Christmas trees. If you are offered one to buy I would ask that you contact police immediately.

“If you recognise the men in the CCTV, please get in touch with us and help us to catch those responsible.”

– Detective Constable Trudy Lindsey
