Wrexham residents reminded to secure their homes and property
Saturday 13th of January 2018
Wrexham residents are being reminded to take basic security measures to thwart burglars, following break-ins in Hightown, Acton and Garden Village in recent weeks.
The burglaries have mostly occurred between mid to late afternoon.
Sgt Sue Samuels said; “I would like to reassure the public that there is a patrol plan in place and high visibility patrols are being carried out in these areas as well as other parts of Wrexham.
“However, I would also like to ask people to ensure that they lock windows and doors, set house alarms, use timer switches and use patio door handle alarms. Property including jewellery, TV’s and bikes can be easily marked using a UV pen just by using their house number/name and postcode and then property can be recorded on Immobilise and bikes on Bike Register.”
If you have any information about the burglaries please contact 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
