FOR THE ATTENTION OF ALL VAN OWNERS
North Wales Police want to make all Van owners aware of recent incidents whereby vans have been targeted and items stolen from inside. It is believed the offenders are using an electronic device which can open the vans without causing damage. They would therefore urge owners to empty vans of all contents overnight or when leaving the Van unattended for a long period of time. Vans have been targeted in Abergele all the way through to Holywell.
If you notice anything or anyone suspicious, please contact North Wales Police by dialing 101. Alternatively, you can provide information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers Wales on 0800 555 111.
North Wales Police would like to urge residents always to report suspicious activity to them at the earliest opportunity.

OIL THEFT WARNING
Want to know more on protecting against heating oil theft and live in Conwy or Denbighshire? Contact DAVID WILLIAMS (designing out crime officer based in St. Asaph) who is responsible for looking after the Oil tanks. He can be contacted on David.Williams8@nthwales.pnn.
North Wales Police are urging fuel tank owners to protect themselves against oil thieves, who have targeted both residential and business premises.
To make your tank more resistant to attack, North Wales police offer the following crime prevention advice:
- If possible, site the tank so that it is visible from the house and as far away as possible from roads, paths and other public routes
- Try to ensure that the tank is not visible from the road
- Install security lighting to protect the area around the tank as most offences take place at night
- Lock the filter cap with a good quality padlock and protect the pipes to the house were possible
- Plant defensive shrubs (thorny) around your fuel tank, e.g. holly
- Check the amount of oil in the tank regularly
- Be vigilant of any unusual vans or lorries parked close to homes or gardens
- Always report any evidence of theft, attempted theft or evidence of tampering to the police.
