Aughton Police Appeal

We are appealing for information after an elderly couple’s home was raided by a group of men in Aughton. It happened at around 6pm last night (Monday, November 2nd) when four men have knocked on the door of a house in the Black Moss Lane area.

One of the occupants, a woman in her 80s, has gone to answer when the men have rushed through the door claiming to be police officers.


The group have ransacked the house with the couple inside, taking a quantity of cash. We are asking anyone who knows anything about the incident to come forward. We have stepped up patrols in the area and we would encourage anyone with concerns to approach an officer.

We would also advise people to stop before they answer the door, make sure you have your chain or door bar in place and always check for ID before letting anyone in. If you are not expecting a visitor, do not know who is at the door or feel uncomfortable, do not open the door.

If you have any information, please call 101 quoting incident reference 1110 of November 2nd. Alternatively independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
