Last weekend, two shops in Tattenhall High Street were broken into, probably on Saturday night. Police would like to hear from anyone who may have information relating to this.
During the second half of the week, two sheds / greenhouses on the allotments in Tarporley have been damaged. I am sure that most people on the allotments know each other and would remember a stranger there. Please look out for each others property if you have an allotment, and report any suspicious activity to the police.

A house in Hargrave was broken into during the early afternoon on Monday. Four youths were seen to come out of the garden. Police attended the area but were unable to find the offenders. Please take extra care over security measures whilst these offenders are at large.

Police have taken reports about a suspicious male in a black, possibly Ford vehicle, parked near to Waverton CP school. Police would like to speak to him in relation to his behaviour in the car. If you are able to provide any further details about this car or male, please contact the police.

There have been a couple of burglaries in and around Frodsham over this past weekend. It is unclear if they are linked at this stage, but residents should be mindful of their security if they have homes, businesses or other buildings in the area. Two house burglaries have occurred in Oscroft and Mouldsworth this weekend. Please contact the police if you have seen any suspicious people or vehicles in the area.

There have been a number of reports about door to door callers offering to resurface driveways, all across the area. There have been a number of complaints about such callers being abusive or trying to charge more than the quote. If you need such work doing, please contact a number of local tradesmen for quotes and do not be pressured into having work done on the doorstep. Such callers are committing offences under Trading Standards legislation which is in place to protect customers.

I have talked previously about identity theft and the measures which should be taken to shred any paperwork with your personal details. Whilst identity theft may cause a loss to a company, rather than yourself, one impact is that your address may end up on a credit blacklist, making it impossible to obtain future credit or mortgages. Please treat your personal details (on the phone, on paper and on-line) with the same care and attention that you would take of your purse or wallet containing a large quantity of cash.
