Detectives are appealing for information following two burglaries at business premises in Runcorn.
The first incident occurred at around 2.20am on Monday 14 June three unknown offenders gained entry into Espositos on Highlands Road.
The offenders made an untidy search and left the scene on moped.
Then, at around 1.30am on Wednesday 16 June two men forced entry into Perky Grinders on Jack Search Way.
Once again the offenders made an untidy search and left the scene on moped. They also stole a quantity of cash.
Enquiries in relation to the incidents are ongoing and officers are now appealing for anyone with any information that could help with their investigation to come forward.
Detective Sergeant Rob McLoughlin of the Runcorn Beat Initiative Team said: “Several enquiries are currently underway in relation to these incidents including reviewing CCTV footage.
“At the current time we are keeping an open mind as to whether the two incidents are linked.
“I would make a plea that anyone who may have seen something that didn’t look right to get in touch.
“The same goes for anyone who may know who committed the offences or may have captured CCTV or dashcam of the mopeds or offenders and has not yet passed this onto police.
“Any information no matter how big or small is greatly received.”
