Residents of Bangor are being asked to take extra care in the build-up to Christmas to secure their houses after a rise in the number of burglaries in the Bangor area.
Bangor residents are now being warned to lock up when they go to bed or out to work or other activities. The alert comes after a string of crimes and burglaries, the latest being at Toronnen, adjacent to Caernarfon Road, where there have been sighted break-ins with personal effects, like electrical items, being the main items stolen.
Inspector Simon Barrasford has reminded people to ensure that they remain vigilant: “It’s important to remember to lock and secure your homes if you are going out and if you have an alarm activate it. At night ensure doors and windows are locked as well as shut and don’t leave items, particularly newly bought Christmas presents out on display that may encourage an opportunist thief.”
Police are increasing the amount of visible police in the area as well as distributing advice and leaflets on crime prevention. Police are asking for anyone with information relating to the break-in at Toronnen or other break-ins to contact North Wales Police on 101 or to anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800555111 and quote RC12195963.
