Detective Inspector Kevin O’Rourke said: “I hope this arrest and the ongoing investigation to find the person responsible shows our communities in Merseyside how seriously we take burglaries.

“To be a victim of burglary can have a profound effect on the lives of victims, from the shock and unease felt by having somebody invade your home, the inconvenience of losing property, through to the often severe long-term psychological impacts.

“It’s also worth having a look at the different ways you can make your homes unattractive targets for would-be criminals. Advice is available on our website for locks, cameras and other measures to bring greater security and peace of mind.”
