Northwich officers are urging residents to remain vigilant following a series of burglaries in the local area.

Over the past week officers have attended four separate burglaries in the Northwich area and on each occasion unknown suspects have forced entry into the rear of the premises. Once inside they have conducted an untidy search and stolen a quantity of cash.

During one of the incidents offenders stole over £8,000 and a large amount of sentimental jewellery from the home of an elderly woman.

Below are the details of the four incidents:

  • Between 3pm and 5pm on Thursday 16 November unknown offenders forced entry into an address on Princess Street, Northwich.
  • At approximately 1.30pm on Friday 17 November three unknown men broke into an address on Stubbs Lane, Lostock Gralam.
  • Sometime between 10am and 4pm on Friday 17 November unknown offenders forced entry into an address on Jack Lane, Moulton
  • Between 2pm and midnight on Monday 20 November burglars targeted an address on Marbury Road, Comberbach.

Detective Sergeant Simon Parker said: “Investigations in relations to these incidents are currently ongoing and we are following a number of lines of enquiry, including forensics and speaking to local residents. At the current time we are keeping an open mind as to whether the four incidents are linked.

“As part of our enquiries I’m keen to hear from any members of the local community who believe they have any information that could assist the investigation. I would also like to encourage local residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the team here at Northwich on 101.”

Anyone with any information in relation to any of the incidents is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 966 of 20/11/2017. Information can also be released anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
