RESIDENTS were left terrified after burglars broke into their homes in the early hours of the morning, stole cars and sped off.
One family was fast asleep on Station Road in Winsford when intruders smashed their way inside.
A frightened mum, who does not wish to be named, said:”We were all sleeping upstairs and some scum threw a rock through my patio doors, ran into the house, found my car keys and sped off.
“We woke up to the crash. My children were in the house but this piece of scum decided he would take what wasn’t his in broad daylight, thinking nothing of the devastation he leaves behind him.”
The burglary happened at 6.10am on Saturday, June 15.
