Police are appealing for witnesses and video footage following a burglary at a bakery in Cuddington.
Shortly before 11pm on Thursday 1 July police were called to reports that unknown offenders had forced entry into Chatwins Bakery on Norley Road.
The offenders had then fled the scene in a black Audi S3 Quattro.
Police were dispatched to the area and a short time later the vehicle was spotted on the A49, Warrington Road.
Officers attempted to stop the car, but the vehicle made off at speed, travelling towards Runcorn through Norley and Frodsham.
The car was subsequently found abandoned near to Beechwood Avenue in the Beechwood area of Runcorn.
Officers, supported by the police helicopter, conducted a search of the area but were unable to find any trace of the suspects.
Detective Constable Paul Matchett from Northwich Proactive CID said: “Enquiries in relation to this incident are ongoing and we are committed to doing all we can to trace those responsible.
“As part of our investigation we are keen to hear from anyone who was in Cuddington at time incident and believes they may have any information which may aid our investigation.
“The same goes for anyone in the Beechwood area of Runcorn who believes they may have seen the offenders fleeing the area after they abandoned the Audi near Beechwood Avenue.
