Cold caller warning after properties targeted in Llay

Police are urging residents in the Llay area to remain vigilant following reports of cold callers targeting properties in the area.

The incidents in the village reportedly took place on Tuesday 5th December.

In October two men posing as police officers entered the home of an elderly couple on Watt’s Dyke and stole a substantial quantity of cash.

A message later issued by police warned residents about doors being tried in the area.

The following advice has now been issued about cold callers, with police urging the public to remain vigilant and keep an eye on elderly neighbours.

1. If in doubt, Keep them out
2. Think about what to say in advance to door step cold callers
3. Call a neighbour or Police on 101

If you do happen to get caught off guard and a cold caller does manage to get into your house, let police know about it as soon as possible. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about, and the sooner we know about it, the better chance we have of catching them and recovering your property.

North Wales Police work closely with local authority Trading Standards Teams and local partnerships to reduce this type of crime.
