POLICE in Chester and Ellesmere Port are on the lookout for cable cutters.
Recent reports of homeowners in the College ward area of Chester, who had their TV and Sky cables cut by cold call scammers, have been followed by a rash of incidents in the last few days where vandals have cut through television and telephone cables on the side of houses.
Officers are calling on residents to keep their eyes peeled for any wrongdoing.
PC Sally Malone of Chester Outer Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said: “This is something of a departure from the normal type of criminal damage we deal with and although it may seem relatively minor it can be costly for victims have the cable reinstalled.
“There seems to be no reason for this current spate of damage and we want everyone in the area to be vigilant and to look out for people acting suspiciously.
“Any suspicious activity should be reported to Cheshire Police immediately on 0845 458 0000.”
