Distraction Thefts

Home » Newsroom » Distraction Thefts


I am the local PCSO for Macclesfield Central, I have taken over John Lee who was on the town for a number of years.

We are having a lot of distraction thefts-
Please keep your belongings close to you and vigilant, if there is anyone acting suspicious please call 101. At this time of year we always see a spike in this type of thefts and they particularly targeting the older generation and vulnerable people.

If you know a victim of this touch basis with them.

There is also a lot of fraud that is being taken place and they are sending in people to get money from their bank and waiting outside to receive the money off them.

Please be vigilant and if you have any questions you can message me :)

Many thanks,

Emily Henshaw
