Dolgellau incident ends peacefully
Saturday 13th of January 2018
Shortly before 11am this morning, Wednesday 20th December, North Wales Police responded to reports of a domestic dispute in a flat in Eldon Square Dolgellau. Local police officers quickly attended and upon searching the property there remained a concern for the safety of the occupants. They contained the area and summoned specialist officers to assist resolving the matter and to protect the public.
Whilst witnesses were spoken to urgent enquiries were conducted by officers to identify and locate the flats occupants whilst specialist officers conducted further searches nearby. As a result police officers located the occupants and were able to confirm that everyone involved were safe and well.
Supt Nick Evans at North Wales Police who coordinated the Police response said “This morning’s incident in Dolgellau ended peacefully and thankfully no one was injured. The incident was reported to us in good faith by a member of the public who genuinely feared someone had been harmed. Local officers in searching the property found evidence of firearms and so this compounded our concerns. As it turns out there was an innocent explanation and everyone was safe. I’d like to pass on my thanks to the local community for their patience and understanding during the incident and particularly the member of the public who made the call. Police resources were quickly deployed to the scene and our objective of protecting the public, resolving the incident peacefully and returning the area to normality as soon as possible was achieved.”
