This article is old - Published: Wednesday, Feb 17th, 2016

Residents in Deganwy and surrounding area are being urged to be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour seen in and around vacant properties to police. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The call is being made after three properties were targeted in the area. Inquiries are on-going in relation to the incidents however local officers are calling on householders to help tackle the crime by reporting anything untoward they may see to police at the time. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“The burglaries have all been reported to us over the past two weeks and are unusual for this area,” explained Insp Kelly Isaacs. “Our investigations are on-going and while this work continues, we are urging householders to remain vigilant and please report anything suspicious they may see around properties – including those which are unoccupied – to us immediately on 101 or 999 if it’s a crime in progress.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Residents planning on leaving their homes for a time or to go on holiday can adopt some simple measures to help protect their homes and give the impression that it is occupied. These include the use of timer switches to activate lights at various times of the day and asking a good friend or neighbour to keep an eye on your property and collect post so that it doesn’t build up on the doormat. Furthermore, householders should ensure that any light sensors they may have around the outside of their property are working and alarms are activated. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
