One person arrested for arson in Wrexham

North Wales Police have said one person has been arrested on suspicion of arson overnight.

This morning the Wrexham Town Inspector twitter account, appearing to be from Chief Inspector Mark Williams, tweeted: “One arrested for arson last night. Great to see the community, police and partners working together to #helpstopdeliberatefires” “Put a stop to arson, call 101 to report”

In what appears to be a busy few hours for police, the National Police Air Service helicopter was overhead twice. Firstly for over an hour in the early hours of this morning, then later around 8am.

There is no detail on if the helicopter activity is linked to the arrest, with many complaining about very noisy quad or motorbikes around town at midnight. One eyewitness has told us they saw a car and two motorbikes being pursed by police around 12:45am along Rhosnesni Lane, an area that appeared to be of particular interest to the helicopter at a similar time.

At 4am the Cheshire and North Wales Police Alliance Armed Policing Unit tweeted the below image of a car that was stopped and seized, they also said ten minutes later another ‘illegal driver off the road in Wrexham this time for being unfit through drink/drugs’.

Earlier this week the unit posted a picture of them specifically patrolling the Caia area.
