Crime and Arrests for the Chester District
Week ending 7am. Monday 12th. November 2007.


I've been asked to explain the significance of 'Thatcham approved', security devices. Thatcham is a government approved testing facility. As well as vehicle safety, it also tests security devices for cars. The Thatcham approved logo on a security device means it meets quite exacting, minimum standards. So, whether it's a steering lock, alarm, immobiliser or tracking devise look for the 'Thatcham approved' sticker. www.thatcham.org.

We are still seeing increasing levels of theft of lead and copper and also burglaries where pedal cycles are being stolen. I've already engraved the owners post code onto a couple of hundred pedal cycles this year. If you are thinking of buying a bike for Christmas, watch this space for cycle marking sessions that I'll be holding early in the new year and as well as the bike, buy a good quality 'D' lock or lock and chain.
