"He was wearing a black peaked cap with matching grey top and trousers with blue stripes down the sides.

“If you were in the area at the time and saw any suspicious person or activity, or have any information about this break-in, we’d like to hear from you.”

“The investigation into residential burglaries is a North Wales Police priority and it must be emphasised we still need assistance from our local communities to both reduce incidents of this nature and identify those responsible.

“It is worth reminding all house holders to be vigilant at all times, always ensure your property is locked and secured and if you see any suspicious behaviour contact police immediately.”
