Detectives investigating a burglary in Runcorn are appealing for information and footage from members of the public.

Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing and detectives are urging anyone who was in the area and witnessed anything that may be relevant to their investigation to get in touch.

They also want to speak to anyone who believes they may know who the offenders are or have CCTV or dashcam footage of them.

Detective Sergeant Rob McLoughlin, of Runcorn Local Policing Unit, said: “Burglary is a serious offence and in this instance the offenders targeted a sports club that serves the local community.

“We are determined to establish who the three males are and make them face the consequences of their actions.

“Enquiries are ongoing and I appeal to anyone who was in the area around the time that the burglary took place and thinks they may have seen the offenders, or anything else that may aid our investigation, to get in touch.

“The same goes for anyone who thinks they may know the identities of the offenders or have CCTV or dashcam footage of them.”
