Detectives have released CCTV images of three males they want to speak to in connection with an attempted burglary in Runcorn.
The incident occurred in Heath Road South at around 4.40pm on Wednesday 11 March.
After breaking into a house, the offenders fled empty handed after being disturbed by an occupier.
Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing.
As part of their investigation detectives want to speak to the three males in the CCTV images.
They are appealing for anyone who recognises any of the males, who are believed to have links to the Rochdale area of Greater Manchester, to get in touch.
Detective Constable Ciara Murphy, of Runcorn Local Policing Unit, said: “We are determined to establish the identities of those who broke into the house and make them face the consequences of their actions.
“We believe that tracing and speaking to the three males in the CCTV images will help us as we endeavour to achieve those goals.
“If you think you recognise any of the males in the images or know who they are please contact us at Runcorn Police Station on 101, quoting IML 658280, give us the details via the Cheshire Police website or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
