Asian Gold Theft

Alert message sent 19/02/2018 09:13:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Dear Residents

We are urging residents to be vigilant following a spate of burglaries in which thieves have stolen valuable jewellery from Asian families within the Warrington West Area.

Residents are advised to keep any high value items in a safe deposit box or bank. Where this is not possible, put them in a safe, which is secured to a wall or floor and complies with official insurance rating standards.

Take numerous pictures of your jewellery and itemise each one on your home insurance to ensure they are covered by your policy.

Invest in CCTV and burglar alarms wherever possible for extra security and peace of mind.

Residents can also request a home visit from their local PCSO, who can advise on how to increase security to make homes less attractive to burglars.

When wearing jewellery in public, particularly during wedding season and religious holidays, consider keeping your jewellery hidden discreet until you get to the venue and be extra vigilant.

Anyone requiring more advice on home security can contact their local crime prevention advisor on 101 or visit

• Anyone who has information about similar burglaries or has been offered Asian or high value gold for sale is asked to call 101.

• Alternatively contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their anonymous online form at No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court.

Kind regards

Carl Beck
PCSO 21798
