Two vehicles set alight in early morning arson attacks

Police are appealing for information after two vehicles were set alight in the early hours of this morning.

The first incident, which took place at around 4:30am, involved a Peugeot 207 set alight in Kingstown, Maes-y-Dre.

A second incident took place around 40 minutes later at 5:18am when a black Astra van was targeted in Pont Wen, Caia Park.

Wrexham Town Inspector, Vic Powell said; “Setting a vehicle on fire is an extremely dangerous and reckless thing to do as well as a waste of emergency service resources.

“It is only a matter of luck that the fires didn’t spread and no one was hurt.

“We have a number of lines of enquiry and we haven’t ruled out a connection between the two crimes at this time.

“However, if anyone has information about the incidents or those who may be responsible, please contact http://www.north-wales.police.uk/contact/chat-support.aspx quoting reference W120119 for Kingstown and W120122 for Pont Wen.”
