Arrest made following string of burglaries across Manchester

A man wanted in connection with a string of burglaries in the Timperley, Partington and Bramhall areas of Manchester has been arrested following a morning raid.

Officers from Greater Manchester Police’s Neighbourhood Tasking Team and the Force Critical Wanted Unit executed an arrest warrant at a Wythenshawe address.

A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and 24-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and obstructing a police officer. Both remain in custody for questioning.

Following a subsequent search of the property, officers found keys to a Porsche, Jeep and an Audi as well as a Rolex watch alongside a rucksack containing a “burglary kit”, found with molegrips, pliers, tracker, signal jammer and suspected class A drugs.

Chief inspector Gareth Firth said: “We currently have a man in custody being questioned by officers thanks to the swift actions of our officers. Thanks to a great team effort this morning we were able to make these arrests.

“Our investigation currently remains ongoing, and I would encourage anyone who may information or video footage to get in touch with police as soon as possible.”
