Thieves raid Trearddur Bay property


Geraint Jones

THE hunt is on for burglars who stole a number of distinctive items from a home on Trearddur Bay.

Among the possessions stolen from the house on Lon St Ffraid were two large 17/18th century copper jugs and a Victorian specimen cabinet.

Investigating officer DC Leigh Anderson of Holyhead CID said: “Burglars forced their way into the temporarily unoccupied house and the quantity of items stolen suggests to me a vehicle off some kind must have been used to take the items away.

“I am therefore very keen to hear from anyone who were in the Lon St Ffraid area of Treaddur Bay and have seen any suspicious activity or who may have know who was responsible for this break-in. “

The raiders also damaged antique furniture during the break-in, which happened some time between November 2 and 20.

DC Anderson added: “I would also appeal to those who deal in, or purchase antique furniture to be alert particularly as some of the articles are unique and very distinctive.

“If you have been offered property of this description recently please contact the police.”

The cabinet is described as a very small set of drawers, part of a Blue Domino dinner service by TG Green and Co (plates and side plates).

Other items stolen included a barometer, a brass face and internal parts of a long case clock, a brass oil lamp and brass bowls.

DC Anderson added: “If anyone has any information about this burglary 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 with information should contact DC Anderson on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, and quote reference RC 12102067.
