Masked burglars disturbed during raid
POLICE are hunting for a gang of masked burglars who were discovered by terrified homeowners.
The three men forced their way into the house on Well Lane in Prestbury at about 10pm on February 18 while the occupants were out.
During their search of the house the family returned home and came face to face with the intruders. The gang fled with personal items, including jewellery.
It is believed the gang also attempted to break into a neighbouring property.
Sgt Keith Graham from Macclesfield Police said: “This must have been a terrifying experience for the homeowners. We are looking for three men who were wearing balaclavas. I would warn all resident to be vigilant and take measures to secure their property.”
