Cheshire Police responded to many incidents in the Norton South area throughout July  .


The incidents varied in terms of seriousness and included a number of individuals acting suspiciously, drug offences, assaults and criminal damage.


There has been a knife crime operation running for the past couple of months which has been successful due to stop checks and arrests being carried out on individuals in the area of Runcorn.

We have also received reports of males selling fish to vulnerable residents , these males have now been arrested and investigations are on going .



Anti-Social Behaviour


We have received an increase in calls this month regarding anti-social behaviour persons on off road bikes especially around the Stockham lane area of Brookvale /Murdishaw area . These are becoming a real issue and we asking for the help of the Public to trace these males/ females before we have a serious incident ,  as we go into the summer holidays .
