Boat untied from its moorings at Victoria Dock, Caernarfon


North Wales Police are appealing for boat owners to be vigilant following an incident at the Victoria Dock in Caernarfon.


At approx. 9pm on Sunday 4th November, three men entered the dock area and untied a 21 foot boat from its mooring.


PC 2298 Andy Goulding, who is investigating the incident said: “Luckily the tide was low, and a concrete panel which protrudes from the water managed to stop the boat from floating away.


“Enquiries are ongoing and CCTV footage is being investigated. This may have been a prank however I am appealing to anybody who may have seen three men acting suspiciously in the Victoria Dock area to contact us. I am also appealing to boat owners in the area to remain vigilant and to make contact should they witness any similar incidents.”


Anyone with information is asked to contact North Wales Police on 101 or 0300 330 0101 quoting reference number N183469.
