Appeal for information after car key burglary in Kirkby

Merseyside Police is appealing for information and issuing crime prevention advice after a car key burglary in the Kirkby area last Friday, 15 December.

Between 2pm and 7.15pm, entry was gained to a house on Buttermere Close, Tower Hill and stole car keys, cash and a Tag Heuer Calibre 17 watch with a brown leather strap. The victim's grey Volkswagen Golf was stolen.

Enquiries are ongoing to locate the car and detectives are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Constable Roy Waller said: "We believe that an offender gained entry through a bathroom window and stole the car keys and other items.

"If anyone noticed people acting suspiciously in the area of Buttermere Close on Friday afternoon, or has home CCTV which captured anyone in the area, let us know and we will act on all information given. If you have been offered a similar watch for a price which seems too good to be true

"I would urge local residents to check their front doors, windows and garage doors to prevent becoming easy targets, and ensure your car keys are safely out of sight. Once you get into the habit of doing a quick check it doesn’t take much time at all and can save you a lot of distress in the long run. It is especially important at this time of year, when Christmas presents may also be visible and the hours of darkness are longer.

"We also continue to distribute crime prevention advice to victims and residents, which is also available on the Force website.”

Anyone with information in relation to these offences or burglaries in general is asked to contact detectives on 0151 777 6802, call 101 quoting reference number 0517321650 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
