Thefts from unlocked cars in FelinheliCrimestoppers logo


North Wales Police are looking for your help to identify thieves who stole a number of items from insecure cars in Felinheli recently.


The first spate took place overnight between Monday 3rd and Wednesday 5th December and again overnight between Friday 28th December and Tuesday 1st January 2013.  The thieves haul included a laptop, I pod, I phone, memory stick, camera, Nintendo DS, a squash racket and cash.   On 4th December an attempt was made to drive one of the vehicles away using the spare keys which were left in the vehicles glove-box.


Local officer PCSO Ian Rooksby said “All the vehicles involved appeared to have been unlocked or insecure and clearly had valuable items left in them which in some cases had been in full view.  I would like to hear from anyone who may have information about these crimes.


"It is really important that car owners remove any personal property and secure it at all times to deter opportunists and avoid becoming a victim of crime.  Leaving any item on display can be a temptation for a passer-by.  Please take a little extra time to check your vehicle when you come to leave it and if possible, remove all items of value and store them safely at home or at least out of sight and secured in the car boot  and finally lock the vehicle and ensure that any alarm or immobiliser is activated."


Any suspicious behaviour or circumstances even if nothing has been taken should be reported by ringing 101.


If you have any information about these incidents PCSO Rooksby can be contacted on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
