Police arrest 33 year old man following Garden City photo theft
A 33-year-old man from the Garden City area of Deeside has been arrested on suspicion of burglary. He remains in police custody at this time. Police can also confirm that the property has also been recovered.
Burglars have stolen items that contain pictures of the victim’s 11 year old daughter who passed away five years ago. North Wales Police are investigating after the house burglary in Garden City.
Investigating Officer DC Jeanette Coyle at Mold CID said:
“Sometime over the last four days a house in Sandy Lane, Garden City was broken into and amongst the property stolen are significantly sentimental photographs of the victims 11 year old daughter Caitlyn who tragically passed away five years ago.
The photographs are in a ‘Fuji Film Fine Pix’ digital camera, silver JVC hard disk hand-held camcorder and stored on a Packard Bell lap-top all of which were stolen during the course of the break-in.
“Also stolen was a quantity of jewellery in a box inscribed ‘To Princess Mummy, for all your beautiful things, love Kaelan’ (Caitlyn’s surviving sibling).
DC Coyle added,
“Being the victim of a domestic burglary is very distressing and whilst a full list of stolen property is still being compiled it is the loss of Caitlyn’s photographs that the family are understandably most distraught over and on their behalf I’m pleading with anyone in the community who knows anything about this incident to contact Police ASAP so we can have a chance of saving the photographs and returning them to the family.”
The officer concluded “Whilst the investigation into residential burglaries is a North Wales Police priority, it must be emphasised that we 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.”
North Wales Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed events to contact them on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and quote RC 1612 0867. Alternatively contact the control room direct via the new web live chat.
