34 arrests made in Cheshire Constabulary’s ‘wanted’ day of action

Cheshire Constabulary’s wanted day of action has been hailed a success with suspects locked up for various offences.

Seventy officers and staff from local policing units, the Special Constabulary and specialist departments tracked down people suspected of committing crimes in the county.

Across the county shoplifters, burglars and domestic violence perpetrators were arrested alongside those suspected of firearms offences, criminal damage, assault, aggravated burglary, and stalking.

Thirty-four people were arrested, two vehicles were seized and a cannabis farm worth £14,000 was uncovered in Widnes.

Armed with information

Operation lead, superintendent Andrew Blizard said: “We went out there armed with information that would help us track down suspects and where possible put them before the courts.

“This is something our officers and staff do every day, but we wanted to highlight that when we identify those who are a priority for us to find, we have the use of specialist departments to help us in our search.

“Teams across the county worked together and successfully located those who are denying victims the justice they deserve. We will continue to work together to prevent crime, locate suspects and keep you safe.”
