Police arrest four suspects wanted over more than 100 burglaries

Warrington Guardian: Police arrest four suspects wanted over more than 100 burglaries Police arrest four suspects wanted over more than 100 burglaries

POLICE swooped in dawn raids today, Wednesday, to arrest three people in connection to a string of burglaries in Warrington.

Officers say they made arrests at three addresses in Manchester and Salford this morning, where police remain searching for evidence.

A 57-year-old woman, a 31-year-old man and a 56-year-old man have been taken in for questioning over more than 100 burglaries across Cheshire.

They include 21 in the town - nine in Grappenhall, eight in Thelwall, two in Lymm and two in Stockton Heath.

A fourth man, aged 50, was arrested and taken from prison where he had been remanded in connection to other offences.

The burglaries happened between October 31 and December 31 last year.

A police operation was launched following the ‘dramatic increase’ in break-ins during this period.

Det Chf Insp Paul Williams said: "The public should feel reassured by these arrests today and I hope it reinforces to them the work we have been doing to catch the people responsible for spreading such misery across Cheshire.

"For such a high number of burglaries to happen in such a short space of time is very unusual and to me shows the arrogance of the criminals responsible, thinking that they would not be caught.

“Detectives have been working tirelessly over the last few months to gather the intelligence and evidence we needed to strike today.

"It was without doubt a number one priority to stop these burglaries and we used a number of tactics and resources as part of our investigation.

“Burglary has such a devastating impact on peoples' lives and I hope these arrests send out a strong message that Cheshire Police takes crimes such as this very seriously and we will put all our resources into catching the people responsible."

Anyone with any information can call police on 101.

This weeks SAC sermon is on free speech next week he will be discussing democracy.

100 burglaries they have been locked up for, yes the police were doing their "job" but i bet theres a few people happy to know that 4 criminals have been arrested and i'm sure the victims will be pleased with the result even if you not.

I know that you demonstrated to have misunderstood my comments either intentionally or deliberately.

The personal attack will have absolutely no affect on me other that provoking this response. You have no idea or evidence as to whether I am happy to know that 4 criminals have been arrested or not. You do not know if I am, or if one of my family are a victim or not.

Perhaps you should continue with comments relating to the article instead. I guess though that you might not.

Hang on, they have been arrested and taken in for questioning that is not a result nor an excuse to let your guard down. They could arrest you and take you in for questioning, that does not constitute guilt! We have a legal system in this country for a reason, you lot have these people banged up already in your kangaroo court. Innocent until proven guilty!! I am not defending no one here burglary is a horrible crime but until they are convicted you have to reserve judgement unfortunately. Now this is where the police do their "job" in ensuring they get the conviction with evidence.
By the way WTF are almost pensioners doing burglaries for anyway.

What! They have not been convicted yet and may or not be. What benefits have you gained from knowing that some people are helping POLICE with their enquires? Now I think that the outcome of a successful investigation and the crime has been resolved and the report of any punishment would be more useful and thus newsworthy.
