DESPITE a warning from their dog, a Pensarn resident was alerted to a burglary too late.

Residents in the Lon-Y-Cyll area, located just off the A548, are being urged to take greater precautions against burglars.

A burglary alert sign has been installed on the street, to warn residents of the incident.

A member of North Wales Police's Community Safety Central team tweeted: A recent incident of burglary has occurred on Lon-Y-Cyll in Pensarn.

"The resident was awoken by the dog barking to find their kitchen window open and items removed of the window sill.

"Please make sure you lock your windows and think about fitting window vibration alarms."
