Burglars target occupied houses in Wrexham

Burglars have been breaking into unsecured homes while people are still inside, say North Wales Police.

The opportunists strike while the occupants are watching television or are occupied in other areas of the property.

Homes in six Wrexham communities have been hit.

Police advise homeowners to close their curtains so would-be thieves cannot see inside properties.

There have been incidents at Pentre Broughton, Ponciau, Minera, Marford, Chirk and Rhosymedre.
