North Wales Criminals Caught on Camera

Three people have been arrested in first stage of new operation from North Wales Police.

Since the launch just before Christmas, more than 9000 people have looked at CCTV images of 11 people police wanted to speak to in connection crimes across the region.

Assistant Chief Constable Gareth Pritchard, said: "Many of the incidents were in connection with low level crime, but I hope that it will make those contemplating a crime, no matter how small, think twice. 

"The clear message to offenders is that we will do all we can to bring them to justice and we will be showing their faces if necessary, if they are caught on camera.

The North Wales are now working with Cheshire Constabulary too to tackle cross border crime, ACC Pritchard said: "Caught on Camera is a new initiative for us, although it is widely used by other Forces across the UK, including Cheshire, who have had a Caught on Camera page on their website for some time. 

"Given they are a neighbouring force we feel there is value to be had in sharing information, with the aim being to identify offenders who travel out of their home areas to commit offences."

29 more images are going to be put on the website during the next three weeks in connection with racial harassment in Wrexham, fraud in Mold, wounding in Wrexham and shoplifting in various locations across North Wales.
