THERE has been an increase in the number of thefts from vehicles across Prestatyn.

This is from the start of 2020.

North Wales Police have launched an operation to tackle vehicle crime in the town.

Sgt Kevin Smith, of North Wales Police Denbighshire and Abergele Coastal, said: "We want to thank members of the public and residents who have assisted the policing team with reports of a suspicious male trying car door handles in the early hours.

“A dedicated policing operation is being run to target those responsible and we ask for the public’s help in identifying any potential suspects.

“We are urging owners to ensure their vehicles and homes are locked and secure and that any valuable items are removed from vehicles to reduce the temptation for thieves.”
