Message from Handbridge Park Officer PCSO Fox

Below is a brief outline of the crimes that have been reported around the Handbridge Park Ward between 15/05/16 and 21/05/16 which are of interest or have an effect on the local communities

1) Howe Road, Curzon Park, - 20/05/16 Daytime – Distraction Burglary – Male claiming to be gardener knocking on doors for work and money has been taken from hallway after occupant was distracted.


There has been a couple of incidents over the last few weeks where members of the public have phoned having had issues with males knocking on doors offering to do either gardening work or work on guttering. During the above incident it appears money has been taken and on another occasion another member of the public who lives alone has agreed to have their guttering cleaned and has suspected on later inspection that no work has been completed for the monies paid. My advice is not to take on tradesman who go door to door. Some of these tradesman are dishonest and by getting involved with tradesman who go door to door you are taking an unnecessary risk. My advice is to phone up reputable companies / tradesman who have been recommended if you require any work doing. If you notice tradesman going door to door who you feel are suspicious or maybe targeting a more vulnerable neighbour please call 101

Please contact us on e mail christopher.fox@cheshire.pnn.police.uk or 101 if you have any issues to report or want to provide any information on people committing criminal activities in your local area.
