Following a series of high value thefts in the Gwynedd South area, we are urging the public to take extra steps to protect their valuable possessions from thieves.
There have been several thefts in the last two months which have mainly taken place on farms and company yards, largely targeting agricultural vehicles and tools.
PC Jamie Aston, of the Western Priority Crime Team, said: “We have seen an increase in high value thefts from rural locations, such as farms, in the last two months.
“Following correspondence with the Farmers Union this week, we are listening to the communities’ concerns and have increased patrols in rural areas.
“I would urge anyone with a quadbike, trailer, Land Rover and other high value tools to take all reasonable steps to safeguard their possessions.
“Simply ensuring to check that high value items are locked away in secure locations overnight and keeping vehicle keys separate from the vehicle can be enough to prevent theft from taking place.”
Below are more steps that can be taken to prevent theft:
If you have any information about the recent thefts in Gwynedd South, get in touch with us via our website or by calling 101. You can also report crime anonymously via Crimestoppers.
