TO CONTACT THE POLICE CALL THE NEW NON EMERGENCY NUMBER 101.

IN AN EMERGENCY ALWAYS DIAL 999

There have been two further thefts of vehicle registration plates this week in Elton. Local residents should be aware of this emerging problem and report any suspicious activity which may be connected to such offences.
About a month ago, I reported on a number of thefts from stables in the Capenhurst area. I can now report that a large quantity of the stolen property has been recovered, having been secreted near to where it was taken from.
Last week, I also reported that there had been a number of burglaries where the offenders had broken into houses with the sole intention of getting the vehicle keys. This week, there have been three further such offences in Rowton, Tarvin and Backford. Another stolen vehicle was sighted and recovered in Helsby. It is typical of this type of offence, that offenders will only break in when they can actually see the vehicle keys through a window or letter box. The easiest way to protect yourself from this type of offence is to keep your car keys out of sight and where they cannot easily be found.
On Wednesday and Thursday, there were a number of reports of suspicious activity in the Guilden Sutton area. A blond haired male aged 17/18 years was knocking door to door on Wednesday and on Thursday, the occupant of a red Seat Ibiza vehicle was seen taking photos of houses. When spotted, he immediately made off. Although neither party was traced, it is quite possible that the action of residents in obviously noting these individuals has deterred any offences from taking place.
In Frodsham, suspicious males were disturbed on Monday evening in Tarvin Road, purportedly looking for scrap metal, whilst on Thursday evening, a burglary was reported in The Willows, where a quantity of jewellery was stolen. If you saw either of these incidents, please contact the police.
In Harthill, an Outdoor Centre was broken into on Thursday night. There is very little traffic in this location overnight, so police would like anyone to contact them, who may have seen any suspicious vehicles in the locality.
Lastly, on Friday evening, a black Labrador was found on Bickerton Hill. If you know who the dog may belong to, please contact Cheshire police and quote incident number 798, 11/10/13.

Regards

Inspector Keith Curbishley
