Police warning after spate of burglaries in Gwynedd


Staff reporter (NW Chronicle)

NORTH Wales Police are asking communities in Gwynedd south to remain alert and report suspicious behaviour immediately after a spate of crimes were reported recently.

Sometime overnight between Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 July, five crime occurrences were reported in the Dinas Mawddwy and Llanaber areas of Gwynedd south which Police believe are linked.  

An attempt theft of a quad bike and tools took place in Dinas Mawddwy whilst there was a theft of a tipper truck and diesel and power tools from two locations in Llanaber.  

A quad bike was also stolen from a farm in Dolgellau and a generator stolen from a layby on the A494 in Rhydyman.   

Sergeant Neil Jones at Pwllheli Police Station said: “Investigating Officers are eager to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour or activity.  Initial enquiries point towards the suspicious behaviour of the occupants of a silver Vauxhall Zephyr and white Ford Fiesta which were seen in the area.  

“Clearly we’d like to hear from anyone who also saw these vehicles or indeed anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour to contact Police immediately”

“Initial enquiries identify the offences occurred overnight and that offenders will have used vehicles to aide their crime so any suspicious vehicle sightings may help progress our investigation so if you know something please phone in.  

“It is worth reminding all house holders to be vigilant at all times, always ensure your property is locked and secured and if you see any suspicious behaviour contact police immediately.”

North Wales Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed events to contact them on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and quote RC 1611 0074.

Alternatively contact the control room direct via the new web live chat /contact/chat-support.aspx
