Thieves target Bootle Cricket Club
Tuesday 5th August 2003

Thieves broke into Bootle Cricket Club in the early hours of Sunday morning. They deactivated and smashed the alarm system before moving inside to take money, including that from the telephone and drinks machines. Bar stock was also taken.

There was a failed attempt to remove the ceiling mounted 'big screen' television projector although a portable television was taken.

The secretary's office on the first floor of the building was also broken into with computer equipment, a telephone and fax machine being stolen.

The scorebox area escaped the attention of the thieves.
