Police warning following Prestatyn burglaries


North Wales Police are asking the public’s assistance following a rise in the number of burglaries in Prestatyn town recently.

Police Sergeant Lee Boycott at Rhyl Police Station said “Over the last three weeks we have seen a slight rise in the number of burglaries and attempted burglaries of residential properties, some during daylight hours.   Thief’s appear to be targeting partially glazed doors at the rear of properties, making a small hole in the glass in order to get access to keys which have been left in the locked door, thereby gain entry.    I would urge people to assist us to protect their property by remaining vigilant, putting house keys out of sight and securing windows and doors.   Property stolen has included Jewellery which is often sentimental, valuable and often irreplaceable.”

Sergeant Boycott added “Enquiries are continuing into the offences and we will increase high visibility patrols in the area.   If anyone has any information I’d like to hear from them.  It is also worth reminding all house holders to be vigilant at all times and always ensure your property is locked and secured and if they see any suspicious behaviour to let us know immediately”

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact North Wales Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 and quoting RC14173697
