Post box theft appeal

16/07/2012Police are appealing for information after thieves stole a post box and made off with the door of another in two rural areas of Wrexham.


Police believe thieves struck sometime between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning July 14, when they lifted a pillar box off its pedestal at the junction of  Gresford Road and Forest Road  near LLay and took the door off a post box in  nearby Croeshowell Lane Burton. In this incident the mail was not taken.


It is believed the thieves my try to sell them, perhaps over the internet.


Inspector Nick Evans said: “I would urge anyone being offered one for sale to report it and if anyone should see suspicious activity around post boxes, especially at night, to call the police."
