MP backs Police and Council’s campaign to highlight the dangers of recent distraction burglaries

Susan Elan Jones MP backs Police and Council’s campaign to highlight the dangers of recent distraction burglaries.

Following a number of incidents involving elderly people in the Rhos area this week, the Clwyd South MP said: “Although thankfully, this does not happen often in our area, it’s vital that local residents do not allow random people into their homes. The criminals will lie about who they are and what they are doing. Utilities companies always inform residents when work needs doing and their staff carry proper ID. If in doubt, phone the utility company to check whether they are working in your area. For other domestic jobs, it is always better to contact a reputable local tradesperson.”

Anyone with information regarding this issue should contact North Wales Police on 101 quoting RC17176350.
