Police and Home Watch – Crime Alert

A message from Southport Neighbourhood Police Team

Southport Police are warning residents of the High Park and Scarisbrick New Road areas of Southport of an increase in house burglaries. The roads which have been targeted include:

Newton Street, Russell Road, Poplar Street, Scarisbrick New Road, Norwood Road and Pilkington Road.

Some of the houses involved were accessed via unlocked doors, offenders have also used a garden spade at one location which was kept in an unlocked garden shed. The stolen property includes car keys and vehicle, handbags, and electrical items.

Please keep doors and windows secure and ensure garden tools are locked away to prevent thieves using them to force entry to premises. It is recommended that identifiable goods are registered on a property registration website such as immobilise.com which makes stolen goods harder to sell and easier to trace back to the genuine owner if recovered.
