North Wales Police are appealing for information and witnesses to identify three men responsible for a burglary in Flint.

The incident happened on Woodfield Avenue at approximately 6.30pm on Tuesday December 8.

The offenders, claiming to be from the Gas Board entered the home of an elderly man and stole a substantial amount of cash from the property.

DC Phil Roberts said;

“This was a particularly callous incident where a vulnerable elderly person has been targeted. I would remind residents to be wary of uninvited callers and to always ask and check the identity of anyone they don’t know and never to let anyone into your property, if you have any doubts.”

Please contact North Wales Police on 101 quoting crime reference RC15187605 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.

The CCTV images show the suspects near the property.
