Theft from Handbags in Wrexham Print
Wednesday, 22 April 2015 07:05

On Saturday 18th April two female victims in Wrexham town centre were victims of theft from their handbags in two separate incidents. 

The first victims purse was stolen from her handbag which was over her shoulder whilst she was walking in the vicinity of Hope Street on Saturday afternoon (‘RC15054831 OWL Alert Eastern’ refers).  The second victim had her mobile phone stolen, also from her handbag later that evening in the Abbott Street area (‘RC15055915 OWL Alert Eastern’ refers). 

I would remind all members of the public to be vigilant and ensure that they keep any bags closed and within sight.

Message North Wales Fire & Rescue Service Print
Thursday, 09 April 2015 11:44

As the nights get lighter and the weather does eventually start to become warmer, we often see a rise in the number of deliberately set fires- so we're appealing to the community to help us tackle deliberate fire starters.

The Fire and Rescue Service would like to appeal to parents to be aware of the whereabouts of their children and impress upon that deliberate fires endanger lives.

"Deliberate fires place tremendous pressure on resources, with our crews tied up for a considerable length of time trying to bring them under control and can therefore delay our attendance at emergencies requiring rescues.

"Remember - setting fires is a criminal offence and we are actively working alongside North Wales Police to combat deliberate incidents, employing the police helicopter to pinpoint the fires and to look out for perpetrators.
