Appeal after wooden poppies and soldiers stolen in Bolton

Police are appealing for information following reports of theft of wooden poppies and soldiers from the central reservation of Bury Road in Breightmet, Bolton.

Somewhere between 3pm – 8pm on Sunday, eight wooden soldiers and several poppies were taken.

Sergeant Zach Keneally from Bolton’s Neighbourhood Team said: “If anyone has any information around the location of these missing soldiers and poppies, please do reach out as we are keen to see them returned.

“The community comes out in their numbers every year to honour those who have lost their lives in conflicts, and it is fantastic to see these soldiers and poppies on the central reservation as a mark of respect to the servicemen and women who have fought for our country.|”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or 0161 856 5761, quoting log number 3265 of 12/11/2023 or crime reference number CRI/06KK/0034005/23.
