Two arrests in connection with city centre burglaries

Two people have been arrested in connection with burglary offences in Liverpool.

On Wednesday, 31 January, officers attended an apartment block in the Moorfields area of Liverpool city centre after a report was received that a man was sleeping rough in the communal hallway and causing a disruption.

Following enquires he was identified as breaking into a number of apartments on site.

Officers attended and arrested a 25-year-old man from Liverpool on suspicion of three counts of burglary offences, acquiring/using/possessing criminal property, and criminal damage to a property valued under £5,000, and possession of a bladed article in a public place.

Further enquires led to the arrest of a 34-year-old woman who was found to be in possession of a bladed weapon and a quantity of wraps containing brown and white powder.

The 34-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being concerned with the supply of heroin, acquiring/using/possessing criminal property and possession of a bladed article.

Both suspects have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
