You won't actually be able to get to the Resident Evil 3 bolt cutters until you hit a certain point in the game as they're basically story locked. Focus first on getting the fire put out that's blocking your path initially. Once you have the fire hose and you've extinguished the flames you'll be able to access the repair shop through the alley. That's where you'll find bolt cutters, obviously displayed in a tool case on the back wall.

It's in this part of the Downtown map. When you do get them, resist using them on the chained door in the room straight away and instead backtrack while it's quiet and use them to grab the shotgun and pop any other chains that were blocking your way. It might also be worth keeping then in the item crate when you don't need them to save on inventory slots, which are in short supply when you first start the game.
