Woman charged following investigation into burglaries in Liverpool

A woman has been charged following an investigation into burglaries in Liverpool.

Maxine Tomney, 54, of Liverpool, has been charged with four counts of burglary and she appeared at Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, and St Helens Adult Remand Court on Tuesday, 4 June. She was remanded into custody to next appear at Liverpool Crown Court on Tuesday, 2 July.

It follows an investigation by officers from Operation Assure into burglary offences committed in Liverpool between January and May this year from properties on Christopher Street in north Liverpool, Marybone in the city centre, Walton Village, and Swiss Road in Kensington.

Detective Sergeant Hannah Marren said, “We take all reports of burglary extremely seriously and we have specialist officers who are able to investigate this form of criminality.

“Burglaries can have a massive and long-lasting impact on the person and families affected as they have had their home invaded which is an awful experience to go through.

“If you have any information about a burglary in your community, please get in touch.”

Always call 999 if a burglary is in progress.
