Residents are urged to remain vigilant following a spate of burglaries in Wilmslow.
Offenders have been burning the locks on patio and back doors of homes in order to enter the property and steal car keys from within. The keys are then used to steal keys to vehicles parked outside.
Chief Inspector David Moores said: “Following the recent spate of burglaries we are stepping up patrols and ensuring that there is a visible police presence on our streets.
“I would like to reassure residents that we are doing all we can to apprehend those responsible. There are a number of proactive investigative enquiries underway.
“While we are doing our upmost to stop these offences and apprehend the offenders, my ask to the local community and residents is to follow advice on how to best protect your home and vehicles.”
Here are some useful steps that residents can take to reduce the chances of vehicles being stolen:
CI Moores continued: “If you see any suspicious activity report it to us so that we can investigate further.
“Any piece of information no matter how big or small could help us catch those responsible and bring them to justice.
“I would urge anyone with information in relation to the recent car and key burglaries to contact Cheshire Police on 101.”
Information can also be reported to Cheshire Police online via the Cheshire Police website.
