POLICE investigating a spate of burglaries in Holyhead have appealed to the public for information.
North Wales Police praised residents for heading crime prevention advice as officers seek to identify the offenders.
Detective Inspector Steve Williams said: “At the beginning of February we alerted local residents through the media, social media and our web site of a number of recent burglaries in the town where thieves had targeting insecure windows and doors.
“In addition to seeking any information about the break-ins we also provided crime prevention advice emphasising the importance of adequate security on windows and doors and to ensure they are kept locked at all times.
“Since this information was shared the number of incidents have reduced significantly indicating improved security by quite simply ensuring all windows and doors and kept locked.”
CID officers are keen to hear from anyone with information on the crimes, which were committed in January.
DI Williams said “It’s vitally important the community assist us protect their property and report immediately any suspicious activity.
“It would appear the offenders are opportunists who are targeting insecure properties, the increased police presence will continue and we need to know who is out and about during the night, particularly during the recent bad weather remembering these individuals may well be significant witnesses to others activity.
“I need to stress that all house holders need to be vigilant at all times and always ensure your property is locked and secured including vehicles 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.
