A male, 24, has today been remanded in Preston prison after pleading guilty to 7 counts of burglary to businesses within the Blackburn town centre area.
As a local neighbourhood team, over the last week we have come together to collate and investigate the recent spate of burglaries within the town centre area of Blackburn which has led to the identity of a suspect who has now been charged and remanded.
There have been 15 burglaries to businesses since the 3rd April, so the whole neighbourhood team have had this as their priority and have been working on investigating, identifying offenders and taking action
It just shows how important it is to report the crimes to the police within a sufficient time frame so that we can collate the best evidence we can regarding forensics and CCTV.
Please keep in touch with the police with any information around crime you receive and we will do our best to keep the streets of Blackburn a much happier and safer place.
