WITH Halloween just around the corner, a woman who has had �600 worth of shoes stolen is preparing to put a curse on the thieves, in the hope they will return her property.

Margaret Poulter and her husband Raymond, of Jessop Road in Stevenage, were in bed when they heard a disturbance outside just before 2am on Friday. Mr Poulter jumped up and saw two men enter their garage and pull the door down behind them.

He called the police and his wife ran downstairs and said she "banged on the door like a maniac and gave them a good scare". But the men managed to escape before the police arrived minutes later.

The thieves got away with two crates of shoes, and other boxes had been disturbed.

Mrs Poulter, 60, said: "The thieves left an item behind - the screwdriver they used to break in with. With Halloween coming up, the screwdriver may be able to give me the vibes to put a curse on them, and hopefully I'll get the items back."

One offender is described as white, aged between 30 and 35, about 5ft 8ins tall, of medium build, and with a fair moustache. He was wearing a dark grey hoodie and dark clothing.
