Police investigate burglary at residential homecrimestoppers


North Wales Police investigating a burglary at Dolwar Residential Home in Llanbedrog near Pwllheli are looking for your help to track down and arrest those responsible.   The Home was broken into sometime between 2.00am and 3.00am on Thursday 14th June 2012 when thieves entered an office and removed a safe containing jewellery and bank documents belonging to some of the residents.


“The safe was removed from the property so it is highly likely thieves used a vehicle” said Investigating Officer PC Andy Vowell of Abersoch Police Station.  He went onto say “From initial enquiries I  believe the thieves drove to the near by village of Myntho as we have recovered a good deal of property that was in the safe from close to the village school.  From there the thieves travelled a further 5 miles to Bwlchtocyn from where we later recovered the actual safe”


Bank cards stolen from the burglary were used just before 5.00am that same morning in Tesco’s Caernarfon and North Wales Police are keen to hear from anyone who saw any suspicious people and vehicles in any of the locations between 2.00 am and 5.00am.  


PC Vowell added “This was a particularly disturbing incident as it has affected a number of elderly and vulnerable people.  One lady in particular who has just celebrated her 104th birthday is very distressed at the loss of her jewellery and so I’d appeal to anyone who has any information to contact Police and help us reassure all the residents of this local residential home”


If any person has information they are asked to contact North Wales Police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
