Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


I am PC Adam Norton from the Runcorn Local Policing Unit Beat Management team. PC Zoe Bowden has asked me to send out a quick update, on her behalf, to Cheshire Alerts subscribers on her beat area this month:

Criminal Damage - A report of youths (aged approx. 15 – 16) throwing stones at buses in the area of the Castlefields Community Centre. We are actively working with local bus companies to identify offenders. Persistent offenders will be considered for ASB Injunctions in addition to any criminal proceedings.
Theft – Pedal cycle stolen on Waterbridge Mews overnight at the end of last month.
Theft – Garden furniture stolen from The Common last week (20/04).
Burglary – Resident of Muncaster Court discovered damage to a door at the beginning of this month, suggesting an attempt to force entry.
Anti-social behaviour
Some reports of ASB in the area of The Common in the past month. Complaints largely relate to noise nuisance and offensive language.
Reports of children playing in the road on Castlefields Avenue East (in the vicinity of De Lacy Row). This is particularly concerning and we would ask that parents remind their children of the importance of road safety as we approach the warmer months.
Illegal scrambler bikes/quad bikes in and around the Castlefields area. We are extremely concerned about riders, primarily youths and young adults, putting themselves and other road users/pedestrians at risk. While this is a challenging problem for police and the community, you can help us by making contact to provide information on the bike owners and riders and addresses where bikes are stored.
A couple of reports of children throwing stones/eggs in Limekiln Row and similar reports from The Calvers and Hedge Hey – we are keen to identify the children involved and disrupt this activity before any significant damage or injury is caused.
Crime Reduction In Your Area
While there are lots of options for securing your home and property. It can be a costly process. There are, however, a few things that we can all do to improve safety and security in our community.

The Bike Register
The Bike Register is an excellent service that offers a variety of options for improving the security of pedal cycles. Cyclists can register their bike for free at . You can also check if a bike is listed as stolen, prior to purchase, at . The service does offer a variety of bike marking packages that do come at a cost, however simply registering your bike’s details is completely free of charge and will help police to identify your property if stolen.
