Police in Rhyl are urging people to keep power tools secure and not leave them stored in vehicles.

The warning is being made following recent incidents where tools have been taken from sheds and from vehicles left parked.

With four incident having happened since Thursday, local Sergeant Paul Anderson said:

“We are keeping an open mind in relation to whether the incidents are linked. While our inquiries continue we are urging motorists and residents alike to please ensue that nothing of value is left in their cars and vans at any time of the day and night and that sheds are also kept secure.

“With winter approaching, many people tend not to go into their garden as often but it is important to check that sheds and outbuildings are locked. Furthermore, check that entry to the garden is secure and that security lights are working – as sometimes these can be enough to deter a thief.”

Anyone with information regarding the incidents or who may have been offered power tools is urged to contact Sgt Anderson and his colleagues at Rhyl police station on 101 quoting reference number RC15163065.

Otherwise, individuals with information can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
