MERSEYSIDE Police have informed the

offences, that have taken place in Formby, Crosby and Blundellsands, between

On Monday, 13 November 2017, Michael Hall, 29, from Seaforth and Lindsey
Browning, 35, from the Wirral, were charged with conspiracy to commit burglary.
These charges relate to a series of burglary offences and include the burglary
in Formby, that resulted in the theft of Tilly, the dog who was has now been
reunited with her owners.
Detective Inspector Robbie Moss said:- "Not only have our investigations
enabled us to recover items taken in a number of burglaries, but we can happily
report that a much loved family pet has been reunited with its owners in Formby.
To be able to bring some happiness back to a family who have been traumatised by
this burglary is a brilliant result for us. We will look to take positive action
on all reports of burglary and vehicle crime. This action is a small part of
extensive work which goes on daily. I want to reassure people that we treat such
offences seriously and information from our communities is vital to this work.
Keep giving us this information and we can keep taking action and reduce such
offences. I would urge local residents to check their front doors, windows and
vehicle and garage doors, and ensure your car keys are safely out of sight. Once
you get into the habit of doing a quick check it doesn't take much time at all
and can save you a lot of distress in the long run."
