A man has been arrested following a burglary at a chemist in Formby

AT about 11.30pm on Tuesday, 21 July 2015, officers were called to a report that a man had forced entry to the front of Boots on Chapel Lane. Merseyside Police say that:- "The alarm sounded and an offender was seen making off from the scene on foot. Officers attended at the scene and CCTV opportunities are being explored. The forensic examination of the scene is now taking place and an investigation into the full circumstances surrounding the incidents is continuing."

Following on from that, a 45 year old man from Bootle was later arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit burglary.

Police also say that:- "A quantity of electrical items and medication were recovered."

Formby Neighbourhood Inspector Jim Atherton commented:- "Fortunately there was nobody in the chemist at the time, but significant damage was caused to the premises which will take time and money to repair. Thanks to information provided by the public and prompt attendance at the scene by my officers, we were able to arrest a man and recover the property that was taken in the burglary. Their swift action has prevented those prescription drugs, which could have been dangerous if taken by someone they had not been prescribed for, from getting into the wrong hands. We would appeal to anyone with any information that might help our enquiries into this incident to contact us."

Anyone with information can call officers on the:- 101 number or contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on:- 0800 555 111.
