Car crooks caught on CCTV cam­era

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Front Page -

● CCTV cap­tured the mo­ment a gang of brazen thieves rum­maged through some­one else’s car in Run­corn.

Footage cap­tured by the ve­hi­cle’s owner Ewa Marchewa showed the group search­ing the two front seat ar­eas and the boot.

She said the gang pil­fered a measly pound coin and jacket and she only no­ticed they had searched the car be­cause they left the boot open. The in­ci­dent hap­pened at about 4.20am on Sun­day on Liskeard Close in Brook­vale and was one of sev­eral that night in the neigh­bour­hood. Run­corn po­lice tweeted to say there had been sev­eral ‘break-ins’ overnight.

As one thief goes to the front pas­sen­ger door, an­other runs to the driver door while an­other paces about be­fore check­ing the boot.

A fourth mem­ber of the group in light-coloured jog­ging bot­toms heads to the back of the car park be­fore skirt­ing round the edges, per­haps as a look­out.

For the most part dressed in black clothes with North Face lo­gos vis­i­ble and their faces cov­ered.

One face is not cov­ered and is vis­i­ble to the cam­era in sev­eral shots.

The jacket is de­scribed as grey, un­branded and a jacket or hoodie. Po­lice have been in­formed.

Ewa said: “It was on Liskeard Close in Brook­vale. “They only took a jacket and a pound from me, leav­ing ev­ery­thing else. The car was left un­locked by ac­ci­dent the night be­fore be­cause me and my chil­dren were bring­ing shop­ping in. I thought I locked it.”
