A man has been arrested in connection with the theft of multiple electronic goods from Amazon.
On Wednesday 4 August 2021 officers received a report of theft from an Amazon distribution centre in Little Hulton.
The report related to the loss of a large quantity of stock including high value tech and mobile phone products.
A full investigation was launched and a man in his 30s was arrested on Thursday 5 August on suspicion of theft and money laundering.
He has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.
A subsequent search of a property uncovered multiple tech products and approximately £250,000 in cash.
Enquiries remain ongoing.
Detective Superintendent Christopher Bridge of GMP's Bolton district, said: "Following a report of the theft of a significant amount of products from Amazon we launched a full investigation to identify the responsible person or persons.
"Thanks to the cooperation from Amazon throughout the investigation, our officers were swiftly able to arrest one male in connection with the theft and this is a prime example of some excellent and supportive partnership work.
"Although we do have one man on bail currently I would stress that our investigation and enquiries will remain ongoing and anyone who have any information should get in touch with police."
