Appeal following two burglary incidents in rural west Cheshire

Detectives investigating two burglary incidents in rural west Cheshire are appealing for information and footage from members of the public.

Detectives investigating two burglary incidents in rural west Cheshire are appealing for information and footage from members of the public.

At some point on Bank Holiday Monday or in the early hours of yesterday morning, Tuesday 28 May, two outbuildings were broken into at a farm on Pump Lane in Churton, Chester.

A Yamaha quad bike and a quantity of tools were stolen from the outbuildings, with the offenders using a small trailer to transport them to a field behind the farm.

The stolen quad bike and tools were transported away from the field via other means.

Over the bank holiday weekend offenders also attempted to break into one of the units at Hampton Heath Industrial Estate off Chester Road near Malpas.

They failed to do so and fled after causing damage to the unit and several cars parked outside it.

A dry powder fire extinguisher was sprayed inside some of the cars.

There is currently no evidence of the incidents being linked, though detectives are keeping an open mind.

Detective Sergeant Danielle Knox, of Chester Local Policing Unit (LPU), said: “Enquiries in relation to the two incidents are ongoing and we are appealing for anyone with any information or CCTV or dashcam footage that may be relevant to our investigations to get in touch.

“Perhaps you think you may have seen, or have footage of, whoever was responsible for the burglary at the farm in Churton or the attempted burglary and criminal damage at an industrial estate in Hampton Heath near Malpas.

“Or maybe you have been offered the chance to buy a Yamaha quad bike since one was stolen from the farm in Churton.

“If you have any information or footage that may aid our investigations please contact the team here at Chester LPU.”
