Appeal for witnesses to daytime break in on Rookery Lane in Rainford
3:44pm Wednesday 7th May 2014 in News
POLICE have issued an appeal for motorists to come forward who may have information about a day time break in.
Officers were called to a house on Rookery Lane in Rainford following reports that the offenders had forced their way in.
It is believed that it happened between 11am and 4.35pm on Thursday, May 1.
Detective Inspector Martin Earl from St Helens CID said: "Cracking down on domestic burglaries is one of our key priorities in St Helens and we are determined to arrest the people responsible for this incident.
"On the day it happened Rookery Lane had some roadworks on it with temporary lights controlling traffic.
"The road is on the outskirts of Rainford village and is always busy, especially at rush hour.
"It's likely traffic was queuing through the day and we believe some drivers could have seen the offenders running away from the property whilst they were waiting for the lights to change.
"If you were on Rookery Lane last Thursday and saw anyone acting suspiciously, or you have any other information about this burglary, I'd appeal to you to get in touch with us."
