Connah’s Quay: Plain clothes officers deployed in response to surge in vehicle crime
In response to an increase in vehicle crime locally, North Wales Police deployed officers in plain clothes in Connah’s Quay overnight.
The force issued a fresh warning on Wednesday highlighting a noticeable increase in incidents of vehicles being tampered with, particularly in the Connah’s Quay area.
The police have received several reports regarding individuals trying car door handles and searching vehicles for valuables.
This wave of criminal activity has raised significant concern among the local residents and authorities alike.
Police have advised residents on ways to minimise the risk of falling victim to these crimes.
Car owners are urged to ensure their vehicles are securely locked, and windows are closed when unattended.
The public is also advised not to leave any valuables in their vehicles overnight to avoid attracting unwanted attention.
In addition to these safety measures, vehicle owners are encouraged to park in areas covered by CCTV and security lighting whenever possible.
This step not only provides an additional layer of security but also acts as a deterrent to potential thieves.
Moreover, residents who find it necessary to leave valuables in their vehicles overnight are being urged to consider marking these items with SmartWater.
SmartWater is a cutting-edge technology that allows property owners to forensically mark their valuables, making them easily traceable back to the owner should they be stolen.
For further details regarding SmartWater or additional vehicle and home security advice, residents can reach out to the North Wales Police by emailing Officer Owen Prentice at email@example.com.
