Crewe & Nantwich Crime News – September 2010


Murder Charge at Crewe A 68 years old man was charged with murder after the death of another man in Crewe. Police Officers were called to an address in Walthall Street in the early hours of Saturday September 11th. They found a 28 year old man with serious injuries. The man later died in hospital. The accused man has been remanded in custody and will appear at Chester Crown Court in October.
Arrests Follow M6 Deaths A lorry driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after two men died on the M6 near Sandbach. The men had stopped their cars on the hard shoulder and were out of their vehicles when they were struck by the lorry. The lorry driver, who is 60 and lives in Selby, was released on police bail while investigations are carried out. In a separate M6 incident, also near Sandbach, a van driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after his vehicle was in collision with a car. A ten years old boy travelling in the car was killed.  The van driver has been released on police bail.
Burglary Warning Police have warned people in East Cheshire not to let Autumn 2010 be a “season of mists and burglary”. They point out that shorter days mean longer working hours for burglars.  Detective Inspector Nigel Groom, head of Eastern Area’s Burglary Unit said, “Everyone needs to think about keeping burglars out. The very first crime prevention measure is to lock the door.  In a third of all reported burglaries the criminals have simply walked through a door which was left insecure. We do everything we can to arrest burglars and we have a lot of success but that doesn’t remove the obligation for people to look after their property.” Police also advise people not to leave valuables or keys where they can be seen through a window; to fit timer switches to inside lights and security lights outside.
Jail for Party Attack A man from Nantwich has been sent to prison for two years and three months after attacking another man at a party. Chester Crown Court was told the incident happened when the victim tried to act as a peacemaker in a row. The accused man, aged 24, admitted a charge of causing grievous bodily harm and a charge of assaulting the victim’s girlfriend.
Violence Charge A 36 year old Nantwich man has been committed to Chester Crown Court charged with causing grievous bodily harm and using violence to secure entry into premises. The charges follow an incident on grassland near the River Weaver which left another man with serious injuries.
New Life for Patrol Car A car which spent four years as a Police patrol vehicle is back in public service- saving lives in Nantwich. Cheshire Police has donated the Volvo V70 Estate to the partnership which runs the Nantwich First Responder Service, to replace a worn-out vehicle. It has been modified by the team which maintains the Police vehicle fleet and liveried in the colours of North West Ambulance Service by the Nantwich Car Transplants company. First Responder Gavin Palin said, “I get a lot of calls. This vehicle certainly won’t be standing idle.” Inspector Bob Hassall, in charge of Nantwich Neighbourhood Policing Unit said, “In three years here, I have seen at first hand the high regard and respect people have for Gavin and what he does. We are glad to give that work any help we can.”
