A spate of burglaries across Flintshire and Wrexham has led to an appeal for information and increased vigilance from the police.

In recent weeks, homes, vehicles, and licensed premises have been targeted, with the authorities now focusing on locating those responsible.

Officers are particularly interested in a blue Ford Focus and a white Mercedes C Class, both of which are believed to be connected to the incidents.

The public is urged to report any information or suspicious activity involving these vehicles to the police immediately.

Detective Chief Inspector Sarah-Jayne Williams acknowledged the invasive and distressing nature of these crimes, stating, “Regardless of whether possessions are stolen, the thought of a stranger intruding in your home or business can be highly distressing and leave people traumatised.”

She further advised homeowners and licensees to remain security conscious and vigilant.

DCI Williams also provided security recommendations, urging residents to lock up their homes, public houses, and vehicles, while ensuring valuables and car keys are hidden from sight.

Additionally, she stressed the importance of maintaining operational CCTV systems to record clear images.

Anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity, particularly involving the vehicles mentioned, is encouraged to contact the police on 101 or via the North Wales Police website, here.
