FOUR businesses were burgled in separate incidents across Bolton.
Police are now appealing for information about the break-ins, which are not thought to be linked.
All four happened on Wednesday and Thursday last week.
Would-be thieves disabled CCTV before breaking into into Britains Aquatic Superstore in Folds Road, Tonge Moor, by removing boards that had been installed after a previous burglary, but nothing was stolen.
Money was stolen from a till at Nisa in Crompton Way after thieves smashed their way in. Thieves used a crowbar to force open shutters at the shop before smashing the glass door. They stole money from the till.
A wheelie bin was used by thieves to get into St Maxentius Church in Bradshaw. They climbed on top of it to get in through a window. It is not known where they went inside the church.
In the final incident, a window was forced open at NGT Garage in Belmont Road, Astley Bridge, and thieves stole items from the indoor valet area, body shop and paint room.
Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555111.
