Over the past seven days there have been two offences of robbery reported to police in Neston.
Police are currently investigating the offences, which occurred on Monday 22nd and Monday 29th January 2018 .
Both incidents were committed by the same individuals. All parties involved are young people under the age of 15 years. Three have been arrested, with further investigations being completed by Cheshire Constabulary CID Officers.
Cheshire Police would like to reassure the community of Neston that the suspects arrested will be put before the court once all available evidence has been obtained. Police will be increasing their patrols within the area over the coming weeks.
PC Thomas Grant said: "We are of the understanding that many young people have knowledge of the incidents and are not willing to come forward due to being called a ‘grass'.
"I would like to reiterate that police need the help from members of the local community and parents to support police and bring the suspects to justice, helping to prevent any further incidents.
"People can talk in confidence to local officers (call 101) or contact Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111, anonymously."
