Levin's Red Cross shop burgled

Levin's new Red Cross recycled clothing shop has been burgled overnight.

Volunteers working at the shop, which opened on Oxford St just last week, arrived at work shortly before 9am this morning to find one of the windows on the front door had been smashed, Red Cross Manawatu area manager Deb Tuckey said.

Inside staff found one of the tables had been cleared of jewellery, but other pieces had been left behind.

''It is really terrible, it's really disappointing.''

The volunteers did the right thing and called police, she said.

The landlord of the building fixed the window after police had been to visit, and the shop was back open for business by lunchtime.

Levin police Senior Constable Mike Tate said police would be checking CCTV in the area.
