POLICE have asked for Holyhead residents’ help after a rise in burglaries where thieves targeted insecure windows or doors.

Detective Inspector Steve Williams said the last three weeks had seen an increase in burglaries and attempted burglaries, a number of which could have been prevented by locking windows and doors.

He added: “I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to have adequate security on all your windows and doors and to ensure they are kept locked at all times.

“By just taking a few minutes each evening to check your security you could save a lot of hardship, inconvenience and distress at a later time”

The majority of the offences happened in the late evening and into the small hours. Property stolen includes electrical items, food and jewellery.

High visibility patrols in the area have been increased to tackle the recent rise in offences
Detective Inspector Williams to asked Holyhead residents help identify those responsible and to prevent further incidents.

He added: “If anyone has any information about these burglaries 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 should contact North Wales Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
