Manchester 250: Wednesday 5 September

Police Chief thief and Flintoff off-duty

Published on September 5th 2007.

POLICE CHIEF, Mike Todd, has become a crime victim for the second time in his tenure as top cop. Items including his uniform, briefcase, baton and personal belongings were stolen from the boot of a car parked outside his city centre flat. Back in October 2002, Mr Todd had electrical equipment stolen by a thief who smashed his apartment window. Police blame inadequate security at the gated entrances to apartment blocks.
