Burglar targets Goldthorpe shop

By ashley ball, Wombwell/Dearne Reporter Friday 13th June 2014

A BURGLAR amazed a Goldthorpe shop owner by breaking into her shop through a tiny window.

Owner Ann Tucker, 38, says she could not believe that the thief managed to get into the Tan Express shop on Doncaster Road through such a small space.

Ann discovered the break-in on Tuesday morning.


The burglar has got away with around £200 and the float but Ann is counting other costs too.

"It's more the hassle than anything else," she added. "I think they see the gold tokens (for the machines) and think they're pound coins because they always seem to take them."


Anyone with information should call the police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting incident number 247 of June 10 2014.
