Dyfed-Powys officers urge Llanelli residents to secure cars
POLICE in Llanelli have launched a scheme aimed at reminding motorists to keep their cars secure and not have valuable items on display.
In recent weeks there have been several incidents where thieves have taken advantage of valuables being left on display in the town. In each one they have smashed a car window to remove a handbag which has been left on display.
"While this is not a major problem at the moment, we do know that there are offenders out there who will target vulnerable vehicles," said Sergeant Justin Evans of Dyfed-Powys Police.
"To try and prevent this we have the started the Vulnerable Vehicle Scheme. "It allows officers the opportunity to look out for these vehicles and to leave a letter giving advice that valuables can be seen and to remind the owners of the need to lock vehicles and conceal valuables.
"We hope the public heed this crime prevention advice, especially in the run up to Christmas."
