Man charged in relation to Winnington burglaries Date published: 7th September 2017 1.52pm

Officers investigating a series of burglaries at an industrial site in Winnington have charged a man in relation to the incidents.

In August 2017 officers from Northwich Proactive CID issued images of three men they wanted to speak to in relation to nine separate burglaries at the former TATA chemical plant, off Winnington Lane, Northwich.

As a result of information received from members of the public officers have now charged a 27 year-old-man from Burnley in relation to the incidents.

Bruce Lee Knowles, was arrested yesterday, Wednesday 6 September, at an address on Dall Street, Burnley.

Knowles has subsequently been charged with conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit theft and production of Class B drugs (Cannabis). He was remanded in police custody and is due to appear at West Chester Magistrates’ later today, Thursday 7 September.

Enquiries are currently ongoing to trace two other men officers are looking to speak to in relation to the incidents.
