I have looked through local incidents over the past week and can not find any crime trends over the past week relating to doorstep and burglary incidents.
However please see the below report released:
Police are warning the public to be vigilant following a spate of distraction thefts at local businesses in east Cheshire.
Over the past few months teams of thieves appear to have been targeting pubs, bars and more recently, offices in east Cheshire. Officers are trying to trace the offenders but in the meantime people are urged to be vigilant and keep valuables out of sight and secure.
In most cases the iPhone is the target of these thieves
They approach an unsuspecting member of the public and place a map or leaflets on the table, masking the iPhone, and engage their victim in conversation. They then pick up the map or leaflets along with the iPhone and make their escape.
