POLICE are appealing to the community of Kelsall to be vigilant following two burglaries in the area.
Between May 2-4, two burglaries were reported in the Kelsborrow Way and Foxhill areas of the village.
Both crimes were committed during the night and on both occasions thieves broke into the premises by forcing patio doors.
Sentimental jewellery, passports and a distinctive medal were stolen during the burglary at Foxhill, notably a Rugby League Cup Final winners medal dating back to 1908.
Inspector Phil Hodgson said: “It is vital that residents maintain good security on doors and windows, particularly during good weather in the summer months.
“Similarly, we would always ask that the community remain vigilant and look out for one another and be aware of your neighbours’ activities and be on the lookout for anyone behaving suspiciously.
“Crime prevention advice is available by contacting my staff on 0845 458 0000.”
Anyone with any information in relation to the burglaries are asked to contact DC Nick Henderson at Chester CID on 0845 458 0000 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
