Burglary Alert

Alert message sent 23/08/2017 16:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Widnes LPU has experienced several burglaries and attempted burglaries of late.

Cheshire Police are urging residents to keep their homes secure during the warm weather to help prevent sneak-in burglaries.

Homeowners across the county are being warned to stay security conscious and keep their houses secure - even when they are at home.

Advice to residents

  • Make sure that all windows are closed and locked, even when you are at home or in the garden.
  • Use the security measures on modern windows, which allow them to let some air in but still be locked.
  • Keep all valuables out of the line of sight of prying eyes. Never put car keys or purses on window sills or in view of a window or door.
  • Always avoid keeping large amounts of cash in your house.

If you have any information about burglaries or see anyone acting suspiciously in your neighbourhood, call Cheshire Police
