Burglary - Handforth

Alert message sent 26/01/2022 07:42:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


Dear Resident,

This letter is to inform you that there has been a burglary on Meriton Road. The offenders gained entry between 19/01/22 & 24/01/22.

OFFENDERS HAVE FORCED ENTRY BY SMASHING THE REAR PATIO DOOR BEFORE MAKING AN UNYIDY SEARCH IN MULTIPLE ROOMS DOWNSTAIRS AND BEDROOMS UPSTAIRS. OFFENDER HAS STOLEN MULTIPLE PIECES OF JEWELLERY FROM THE HOUSE BEFORE MAKING GOOD THEIR ESCAPE.

If you believe that you have seen anything or have any CCTV that has captured the offenders please contact the officer in the case Pc Morse on 101 alternatively you can e-mail the Macclesfield policing unit mail box on macclesfield.lpu@cheshire.pnn.police.uk.

Most burglaries are carried out by opportunist thieves, below are some ideas to prevent this happening to you.


• When you go out, always lock the doors and windows.
• Put your garden tools away, these provide an easy way to force entry to your house.
• Make the house appear occupied, draw the curtains and leave a light on.
• Don't leave spare keys outside or keys in outbuilding/garage doors.
• Keep keys away from the letterbox to stop burglars ‘fishing’ for them
• Use timers for lights and radios if you need to be away from home overnight.
• Don’t leave your bin out where they can be used as a step to climb a wall, fence or gate.
• Have a neighbour check that milk bottles, parcels and post are not left outside or near the letterbox.
• Visible burglar alarms, good lighting, and carefully directed and limited security lighting can act as deterrents.
• If your car has keyless entry, consider purchasing a faraday bag that blocks the signal preventing thieves from using the signal to get in to your car.
