A detective investigating a burglary at an address in Warrington over the weekend reunited the family with the wheelchair which was taken when thieves stole their car.
The car was recovered from Liverpool after a tip off from a member of the public.
Sometime over the night of Saturday 19 December and the morning Sunday 20 December 2015 thieves broke into a house in King George Crescent in Warrington and stole Christmas presents from under the Christmas tree and cash from Christmas cards. The family were asleep upstairs at the time.
The offenders also took the keys to the family’s Ford Kuga which contained their 4-year-old daughter’s specialised wheelchair. DC Vicky Goodwin visited the family today who were thrilled that their little girl's wheelchair had been found.
DC Vicky Goodwin said: “After seeing the publicity a member of the public called us last night to say a Ford Kuga had been parked up in Bowring Park Road in Liverpool. We recovered the car and thankfully the wheelchair and the children’s car seats were still in situ, but there were no presents in the car.
“We’re still appealing for witnesses and thank the media and the public for their continued support.
“Anyone with information should contact Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 413 of 20 December 2015.
“Alternatively, information can be given anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
