Our local PCSO, Alex Simpson, has asked the Parish Council to make local residents and businesses aware of the following alert:
There has been 40 purse thefts or bag dipping offences in Cheshire over the last 2 weeks. The offenders for these crimes are described as Eastern European. The offenders will enter shops, cafes, bars or pubs and ask for directions. They produce a piece of paper which usually has a map drawn on it or foreign writing. They will use the paper to cover phones, purse’s, bags or even the cash tills. Once the item is covered by the paper they will take it. Shops in Poynton were targeted last week. Please remain vigilant and report and suspicious activity.
Please pass this warning on.
