Burglary Knutsford

Alert message sent 12/02/2022 11:14:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


Dear Resident,

This letter is to inform you that there has been a burglary on Mereheath Park in Knutsford. The offender(s) gained entry to the property at unknown time between 6th and 9th of February 2022. Expensive watercolour paintings are missing from the property along with few other things.

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.
