June Crimes in Rainhill VillageLynn Carberry, Merseyside Community Laision Officer, reports that through dedicated actions in St Helens, there has been a 50% reduction in burglaries since November 2005.
Rainhill, however, still appears to be a popular target and burglaries did occur in Elderswood, Holt Lane and St Annes Place.
Car theft is also a real problem and incidents occurred in the following places:
Longton Lane, Stoney Lane, Rainhill Road, Dunbeath Avenue, Warrington Road, Blundells Lane, Newby Avenue, Ratcliffe Place and Ansdell Villas Road.
Joe, Mike and myself again urge village residents to be vigilant. It really does only take a few seconds for a sneak thief to act.
