Police said this morning: “Officers investigating a spate of distraction burglaries in Wrexham earlier this week have arrested a man. A 36 year old was arrested at a caravan site in Gwern Lane, Hope this morning and is currently in police custody in Wrexham.

“Officers also attended a caravan site in Ruthin Road Wrexham in search of a suspect who remains at large.”
