A MOTHER is distraught after her car was broken into and her daughter’s entire summer wardrobe stolen from the boot.
Sharon Connolly, 46, discovered the passenger doors slightly ajar when she came to get in her car on Tuesday morning last week.
The teaching assistant, who lives on The Green in Parbold, searched her car and found that several items, including perfume, a first aid kit and her daughter Aimee’s clothes had been stolen.
Sharon had collected Aimee’s summer wardrobe to store at her house and had forgotten to take the clothes into her home the previous evening.
She said: “I thought I saw a torchlight on the driveway but I told myself it was just a car turning and went to bed. The next morning I opened the boot and it was completely empty.
“I just couldn’t believe it and instantly called the police.”
The total value of the clothes is estimated to be around £700 as Aimee’s collection included Ted Baker dresses and expensive shoes.
Police told Sharon there had been several car break-ins around the Parbold area.
She said: “It’s made me so nervous, I don't feel safe in my own home anymore.”
A police spokesman said: “We’d urge people to ensure their cars are locked and secured and that if they see anyone acting suspiciously they should report it.”
