Police investigating overnight burglary incidents at a school and a cricket club in the Frodsham area are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Kingsley St John’s CE Primary School on Hollow Lane and Alvanley Cricket Club on Frodsham Road were both broken into between around 6pm on Thursday 20 June and 7am on Friday 21 June.
Nothing is believed to have been stolen from the school but items were stolen from the cricket club, including a quantity of cash that was in a charity box.
Enquiries in relation to the incidents are ongoing and officers are urging anyone with any information or footage that may be relevant to their investigations to come forward.
Police Constable Matt Griffiths said: “We are keeping an open mind as to whether or not the two burglary incidents are linked.
“The school and the cricket club are quite close to each other, and with both incidents the offenders damaged the front door to gain entry to the premises.
“But that by no means proves that the same people are responsible for the two break-ins.
“Whoever broke into the school had a good look around the building but it appears that nothing has been stolen.
“The cricket club was not so lucky, with the offenders having callously stolen money from a charity box, as well as other items. They also broke a window at the premises.
“We are determined to catch those responsible for the burglary incidents and bring them to justice.
“Enquiries are ongoing and we are appealing for anyone who was near the school or the cricket club between around 6pm on Thursday 20 June and 7am on Friday 21 June and witnessed anything suspicious to get in touch.
“The same goes for anyone who believes they may have seen, or have CCTV or dashcam footage of, any of the offenders or have information regarding their identities.”
Anyone with information or CCTV footage that may help the investigations should call Cheshire Constabulary on 101, quoting IML 433857 for the school or IML 433850 for the cricket club, give the details via https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/general-enquiries or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
