Vehicle broken into near Upton Heath School

Alert message sent 14/02/2019 17:46:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


This week we have been advised of a vehicle which had its window smashed.  The offenders have then stolen a laptop, an expensive rucksack and a purse with cash and cards in. The victim had left the vehicle only for two to three minutes.  This happened near to the Upton Heath School.

Vehicle crime

It takes as little as 10 seconds for a thief to steal something from your car. The best way to protect your belongings is to lock your car whenever you leave it. Other things you can do include:
  • Removing everything from the car; don't even leave a jacket where it can be seen
  • Closing the sunroof along with the windows when you leave
  • Not storing things in the boot; take them with you
  • Storing car ownership information in your home, not your car
  • Having a routine to ensure you always take the keys out of the ignition
  • Taking removable stereos and sat nav equipment with you
  • In addition, using secure (theft resistant) number plates can make your plates less attractive to thieves
Please do not make it easy for offenders
Many Thanks
PCSOs Tapley and Eccleston
