Burglary Alert | Hesketh Park area of Southport

11th April 2020

Whilst the focus at present is quite rightly on the coronavirus and following the government instruction to stay at home, criminals will still try and find ways to commit crime.

Merseyside police are investigating three burglaries that took place to two flats and a house in the Hesketh Park area of Southport between Thursday the 9th and Friday the 10th of April. Patio doors to the flats and a front door of the house were used to gain entry to the properties and steal jewellery and electrical items. The burglaries took place at different times of the day.

It is clear that, despite the majority of us staying home, there is still a need to keep doors and windows locked and secure. Don’t let the warm weather lose your focus for the need keep your home secure.

On a related note, we are aware of a number of instances of suspicious circumstances in the Larkfield Lane area of Southport, where a man has knocked at doors asking for a glass of water or even if a car on the drive was for sale. Irrespective of the Coronavirus situation, the advice around cold callers remains the same at all times.Try to speak to cold callers through windows or locked porch doors. Never agree to any work to be done by cold callers and certainly do not be distracted and leave doors open to them.

Always report cold callers or suspicious activity on 101 or via our MERSEYSIDE POLICE CONTACT CENTRE page on Facebook and try to get registration numbers of any vehicles the cold callers may be using.
