North Wales Police are appealing for witnesses after an attempt break in took place between Thursday 17th April 2014 and Friday 18th April 2014 in Ruthin.

Investigating Officer DC Andrew Skyner of St Asaph CID said “During the evening of Thursday 17th April and the early hours of Friday 18th April an attempt was made to gain entry into a residential property on the Maes Hafod estate in Ruthin.   An attempt was made to gain entry through ground floor windows but fortunately this was unsuccessful, no harm came to the occupier but he was clearly shaken by the incident”.    

DC Skyner added “If you were in the area at the time and saw any suspicious person or activity, or have any information about this incident I’d like to hear from you.   Please phone 101 or Crimestoppers.”

The officer concluded “The investigation into residential burglaries is a North Wales Police priority but it must be emphasised 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.”

Anyone who has any information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 and quote reference RC14056968.
