Five men in court today charged with burglary following dawn raids in Halton
FIVE men are due to appear in court today charged with conspiracy to commit burglary following dawn raids in Halton yesterday.
The defendants, four from Runcorn and one from Widnes, were arrested as part of Operation Attar, an eight month investigation into a spate of burglaries.
The men, aged two aged 18, and three aged 22, 24, and 26, have been remanded in custody to appear before Halton magistrates this morning.
The operation was led by officers from the Halton Proactive Policing Team.
Following the execution of the warrants local neighbourhood officers have been carrying out high-visibility patrols to offer reassurance to local residents.
