Arrest Follows Stabbing A man appeared in court charged with attempted murder after an incident in Badger Avenue, Crewe. The man, aged 30 was remanded in custody. A 29 years old man was taken to hospital after receiving stab wounds to the neck and left arm.
“Threat to Community” Removed A 19 years old man who drove through the window of a motorcycle dealership in Crewe, causing £43,000 worth of damage was sent to a Young Offenders Institution for three and a half years. As well as pleading guilty to criminal damage, the man admitted possessing heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply. P.C. Tony Condon said, “This man posed a threat to the community in several different ways and it is good that he has been removed from that community for some time.”
Quick Justice A man was sent to prison within 24 hours of stealing from a parish hall in Nantwich. Members of Nantwich Neighbourhood Policing Team began an immediate search when a patrolling Police Community Support Officer was told that bags, wallets and keys had been stolen from people at the hall. Within minutes they located a man behaving suspiciously and arrested him. Although he first denied any connection with the incident he was questioned next morning and charged with three offences of theft. Later the same day he appeared in court and was jailed for four months. Inspector Bob Hassall, in charge of Nantwich Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said, “This was a really quick and effective response by a PCSO, a Police Constable and an officer from the NPU Investigation Team. It was a great example of what teamwork can do.”
