Malpas Residents be vigilant

Chester Rural officers are warning residents in the Malpas to remain vigilant after reports of shed break-ins in the area.

Over the past three days officers have received five separate reports from residents in the Cuddington area of Malpas whose sheds and outbuildings have been targeted by criminals.

PC Gerard Gidd said: "It is really important that residents remain vigilant and security conscious. This applies not only to your home but your car, shed, garage and any other outbuildings that you own. It is imperative that these are kept safe and secure — otherwise you run the risk of them being targeted.

"Don't leave yourself vulnerable to opportunist thieves, so please take the time to check you have taken all of the necessary security measures."

Officers have now launched a full investigation into the incidents and as part of their investigation they are keen to hear from anyone with any information in relation to the incidents which took place in the Cuddington area of Malpas.

As part of the investigation officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a White Transit van or a Renault Van in the area where the incidents have occurred.

PC Gidd added: "We need the continued support of the local community in tackling this type of crime. I would urge residents to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity in their area to the police immediately."

Anyone with any information in relation to the incidents is asked to contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 141 of 4/5/2017. Information can also be passed anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
