Pennine police appealing for information following burglaries and thefts of vehicles

Date published: 12 February 2019

Officers from the Pennine Neighbourhood Policing Team are appealing for information following an increase in serious acquisitive crime including burglaries and thefts of motor vehicles.

A spokesperson for GMP Pennine said: “We have made seven arrests over the last two months with one suspect receiving a custodial sentence, but we require more information to support our investigation in to offenders who remain outstanding.

“The thefts have been taking place between 6pm and 2am, usually on week days.

“The suspects are described as being white males in their mid- to late-teens.

“We ask the public to remain alert and to report any suspicious behaviour.

“Please do not speculate or put forward names on social media as this may harm our investigation.”

Members of the public are advised to store their keys in a safe place at home out of sight away from doors, windows or letter boxes whilst key fobs should be stored in places where the signal can be blocked such as in a faraday bag.

In the event of an emergency call 999.
