    News from your Community Policing Team. A message from Inspector Ian Jones

    ‘Some good news this week is that Ethan Taylor received a 4-year prison sentence for a robbery in Hapsford Park which was one of several similar incidents. Good communication from the community assisted in securing the sentence. Shane Nixon has again been arrested for theft from motor vehicles in the Crosby and Maghull areas. He was found guilty and sent back to prison for a month. We have recovered two large cannabis farms in Netherton and Bootle and continue to urge the public to report any suspicious signs of cannabis farms in your area. We also conducted a search warrant in the Kirkstone Road North area with a large amount of Class ‘A’ drugs recovered.

    As can be seen, last week was a very busy week with some great results. We couldn’t do this without the public’s help so please keep contacting us with information.’

Incidents in Local Area

On 08.04.2017, three masked youths were disturbed trying to break into a house on Green Lane. They were disturbed by a neighbour and they made off in the direction of Hartdale Road where they had a stolen vehicle parked in order to make their escape.

The neighbour confronted the youths and was assaulted by two of them using a piece of wood and a concrete block and things could have been worse only for the intervention of another neighbour.

All three made good their escape in the vehicle.


During the afternoon of 14.04.2017, there was a road accident in Thornfield Road when a speeding vehicle using Thornfield as a ‘rat run’ struck a vehicle that was emerging from a resident’s drive causing substantial damage.

Police, ambulance and fire service were in attendance, luckily there were no major injuries.


Sometime over the Easter weekend, a house was burgled in Water Street and two vehicles stolen. These were subsequently used in crime and later found burnt out.


Over the past few weeks there have been several incidents of cars being ‘keyed’ across the Parish.

Although nobody has been identified as the culprits, one time slot can be identified as between 05.15 and 08.00 Sunday morning.

Scrambler bikes are continuing to be a nuisance in the are – please report any incidents  to Merseyside Police

Please be vigilant.
