Western Rural Round-up Week ending 4/8/2013




  • In the early hours of last Monday morning (28th), a shop in School Lane, Sandiway was broken into at about 01.30am. There is indication that the offenders were at the location for quite some time. If you saw or heard anything unusual, please contact the police — we would rather hear about something that turned out to be nothing, than miss out on some valuable information that wasn't passed, just because someone felt that they may be 'wasting our time'.
  • At the beginning of the week, we had a couple of reports of thefts of vehicle registration plates, or attempted thefts of the same, in the Frodsham area. This is an offence which police need to be notified of as soon as possible — early notification gives us the best chance of catching the offenders before they can use the stolen plates to commit a more serious crime. Also in Frodsham, a couple of vehicles had property stolen from them on Monday 29th. One of these vehicles was unlocked! Please be careful about being seen to leave property in a vehicle and if possible, don't leave things on view in an unattended vehicle. Always make sure your vehicle is secure — insurance companies wont pay out if it isn't!
  • Last Monday (29th), a burglary was reported from an address on the outskirts of Churton village. The burglary happened overnight and fits in with a trend of houses in either isolated rural locations or on the edge of villages, being broken into. Please be aware of this trend, ensure your security is good (lock doors and windows, even in warm weather) and look out for your neighbours properties. We stand our best chance of catching these offenders if local residents remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity straight away.
  • On Wednesday evening, a local male entered a shop in Tattenhall and tried to steal money from the till. No weapons or threats were used. He was thwarted in his attempt by public spirited customers and was arrested a short time later.
  • On Thursday 1st August, there was a large fire in a garage belonging to a house in Hallfield Drive, Elton. Police attended the scene and recovered a quantity of drugs from the location. A male has been arrested in relation to this matter and has been released on bail whilst further enquiries are made.
  • On Friday, police received a call about some Eastern European looking males knocking at addresses in the Tarvin area, offering to clean gutters. However, they seemed to be focusing their attention on those houses without a car on the drive, and were also looking into windows. Unfortunately, the males had left the area before police attended. This is exactly the kind of suspicious activity that the police need to be told about as soon as possible.
  • In the Capenhurst area, a stable was broken into by forcing the locks and a quantity of tack was stolen. Fortunately, this was recovered, having been found concealed by a nearby hedge, presumably for later collection by the offenders! Please ensure that outbuildings have strong locks and that property has appropriate security markings.
