They are urging anyone with information about recent thefts in south Warrington to come forward and are appealing for residents to take action to reduce their chances of becoming victims.
Police Constable Wendy Whitehead, Beat Manager for the Stockton Heath, Grappenhall and Thelwall areas said: “There has been an increase in the number of thieves gaining access to sheds, vehicles and homes in the areas over the past few weeks.
“Bikes have been stolen from sheds and items have been stolen from vehicles.
“Vehicles themselves have also been stolen, including after the keys were taken from the owner’s home.
“The public can aid our fight against such crimes by contacting us if they have any information in relation to them, or if they see any thefts or burglaries being carried out or anyone acting suspiciously in their area.
“Information in relation to anyone carrying out, or suspected to be carrying out, such crimes will also be gratefully received.
