Arrests made after Euxton burglaries

First published in Euxton

LANCASHIRE police have joined forces with their Merseyside counterparts in a bid to crackdown on criminals who cross the borders of the county to commit crime.

Officers have been working together on joint operations to catch criminals and to prevent crime from being committed and have already had success in the Euxton area.

As part of the initiative a number of warrants have been executed at the homes of suspected offenders under the Theft Act.

Insp Steve Evans from Lancashire Constabulary said: “Lancashire’s residents should be reassured that we are doing everything we can to target those who travel into the county to commit crime. “We are putting a lot of resources into catching criminals and our message to those individuals is that we know who they are, we are on to them and we will do all we can to put a stop to their behaviour.

“We are confident that joint working and operations of this nature work but we are not complacent and we will continue using such tactics in out fight against crime.”

Three people from Liverpool have been arrested over the past two weeks in connection with burglary offences committed in Euxton.

Anyone with information about possible offenders or suspicious activity should contact police on 0845 1 25 35 45 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
