Burglars strike three times in two nights


Local residents are urged to make sure they keep their homes locked and secure after three incidents occurred in Wilmslow during the past two nights.

In the early hours of Thursday, 10th August, between 2am and 4am, there was an attempted burglary on Pownall Road where some garden furniture was used to smash the rear door. However, entry not gained and nothing stolen.

Police Sergeant John O'Driscoll said "There was two quality vehicles on the drive which is believed to have been the target."

Also between 2am and 4am on Thursday, 10th August, there was a burglary on Oak Lane. A ground floor window was removed allowing the offender to access the property. Car keys were taken and a white Audi was subsequently stolen.

Then in the early hours of this morning (between 2am and 4am on Friday, 11th August) there was a burglary on South Oak Lane. Access was gained to the property by an insecure window and two sets of keys and the accompanying vehicles, a black Porsche and a grey Volvo, were stolen.

Police Sergeant John O'Driscoll said "Enquiries are on-going into each offence and whether they are linked. At time of writing the vehicles are outstanding.

"Residents are urged to ensure items are secured in sheds and not left out to aid offenders gaining entry. Ensure windows are secure and keys are not on display."
