Appeal following attempted burglary in Winsford Date published: 30th September 2019 2.54pm

Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward following an attempted burglary at a convenience store in Winsford.

At around 2.45am on Monday 30 September officers out on patrol discovered that unknown offenders had attempted to break into the McColls shop in Delamere Street.

They had damaged the shutter at the front of the store by attempting to force it open.

The offenders had failed to do so and had left the scene empty handed.

The incident is believed to have taken place between 10.30pm on Sunday 29 September and 2.45am on Monday 30 September.

Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing and officers are urging anyone who was in the area and witnessed anything suspicious to get in touch.

They also want to speak to anyone who believes they may have dashcam footage of the offenders.

Detective Constable Mark Sherratt, of Northwich CID, said: “Thankfully, on this occasion the offenders were unsuccessful in their attempts to commit a burglary.

“We want to trace whoever tried to break into the convenience store before they target anywhere else.

“As part of our investigation we want to hear from anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the Delamere Street area of Winsford between 10.30pm on Sunday 29 September and 2.45am on Monday 30 September

“The same goes for any motorists who believe they may have captured the offenders on their dashcam. The store is located on a busy road and I believe there could be a number of drivers who drove past the shop and captured the incident on camera.

“I urge anyone with any information, no matter how small, to call the team here at Northwich on 101, quoting IML 522190.”
