Masked bur­glars dis­turbed dur­ing raid

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

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.”
