Police out in force today after another burglary in Formby

Merseyside Police have been in Formby in force today after yet another burglary took place. This is the third one in the last three days in Formby and Hightown that we know of.

Today, Sunday 12th February, a house on Ward Avenue in Formby was broken into some time between 12noon and 8pm. The burglars broke in through the back door with a crow bar and gained entry to the house where they stole laptops and computers. The Police have been searching gardens in the area in the hope of retrieving some of the stolen goods.

On Friday 10th February, a man was caught attempting to get into a garage in The Roundway, Hightown. He was wearing a jacket with a hooded top underneath and had also attempted to get into a neighbours garage as well. He ran off down the passage towards Village Way.

On Saturday morning of 11th February, a BMW was stolen off a driveway on Argarmeols Road, Formby at 2:20am. The driveway had electric gates but at this stage we do not have any more details but will keep you updated.

What this does prove, is that these criminals are not deterred by electric gates, CCTV, size of house, they do not seem to have any particular intent other than burglary in Formby. Please, please, be vigilant, report anyone looking suspicious during the day or the night. Make sure your doors and windows are kept locked at all times.

Only last week a Golf car was stolen off a drive in Formby by a burglar who had broken into the house through the back door to steal the keys off the cupboard whilst the owners were sat in the living room!

Community Inspector Graham Fisher said: “This offence happened in the early evening and we would like to speak to anyone who saw anything suspicious around that time or saw the Golf after it was stolen. “I would ask that people review their home security and check that their windows and doors are secured ensuring that keys are not left in them.” Anyone with information about any of these crimes, should contact Merseyside Police via 101 or through Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
