Please find below some valuable information relevant to the rural communities for your awareness:-

  • Stone thefts – We have seen an increase in stone thefts in the Knutsford area so please continue to report suspicious vehicles or activity around this. We have an investigation that is on-going in relation to several incidents.
  • Landrover Defender theft – We have received one report regarding a stolen Defender in the Cheshire area. This was reported on the 29/09/20 from Rudheath. If you own a defender please consider your own security, different layers of security have benefits for example – trackers, steering locks, using another vehicle to block your Defender in etc
  • Sheds broken into – We have received numerous reports of sheds being broken into in the Nantwich rural areas. Please consider your security around alarms, locks, items being secured will help deter thieves.
  • Equine – As of the start of October it is now a legal requirement to have all horses, donkeys, ponies and mules microchipped.
  • Awareness – Now the majority of crops have been cut please be mindful of gates being left open as this can make it easy for poachers to gain access to your land.
  • Poaching and hare coursing to has increased this month due to crops having been harvested, so please contact us with any concerns.

Kind regards
