Police have issued an appeal after robbers entered into a residence and took a vehicle as well as “irreplaceable” sentimental jewellery. It happened between 7 and 8 p.m. yesterday in Wrexham’s Erlas Park.
The vehicle, a Toyota Aygo, was eventually recovered, but the jewellery was not, and Inspector Luke Hughes is appealing to the public for assistance in locating it.
Insp Hughes stated on Facebook: “Both the vehicle and the premises will be subject to detailed forensic investigation this morning and officers will be trawling CCTV.
“Sadly, when the victims left the property for a few hours, somebody took the opportunity to break in using force and steal not only their vehicle, but also significantly sentimental items of jewellery, which are irreplaceable.
“The incident in Erlas Park happened between 7pm and 8pm yesterday evening (Thursday, October 20). The vehicle, a Toyota Aygo, has been recovered in Pentre Gwyn.
“Can I ask if you live in the area of Erlas Park, or Pentre Gwyn, to please review your CCTV for anything that could be linked to this matter. You are looking for any suspicious activity at/around this time, such as individuals on foot, bike etc.
“Please make the jewellery too hot to handle and report anything you know to us in confidence by sending a DM to this account, via our website or via the control room on 101. Your help would be really appreciated.
“Sadly, there is every indication the offenders are local and that makes the situation all that more frustrating,” said Insp Hughes as he urged people to remain vigilant for burglars.
