SECOND POLICE WARNING TODAY, see previous Rhos on Sea message

FIREARMS holders in North Wales are being reminded to be on their guard against thieves posing as firearms licensing officers.

The warning comes after a firearms holder in another force area received a suspicious phone call.

The female claimed to be from the force's Firearms Licensing Unit and said that someone would have to visit the property to inspect his security.

The firearms certificate holder wasn’t convinced that the call was genuine and inquiries with the force’s Firearms Licensing Unit revealed that no-one from the team had recently made contact with this individual.

Andy Broadhead, firearms licensing manager at North Wales Police, said: “We are continuing to process grant and renewal applications and will contact applicants by telephone individually to discuss the most appropriate way of processing their application.

“We only visit by appointment and I would like remind applicants that if they are any doubt as to the identity of the members our team please ask for a name and photo ID for confirmation.

"If you are in any doubt, telephone 101.”

A BIKE has been stolen from a front garden in Llandudno.

This was in Bodnant Road. It was a black and green carrera mountain bike.

A spokesperson for North Wales Police Community Safety Central said on Wednesday, July 22: "A bike theft alert sign has been put up.

"Sadly the resident forgot to lock the bike.

"What we ask is if you can, keep your bike inside if you can put it in the shed or garage.

"If you are not able to do that, try and keep it locked with a good quality lock."

MORE than 400 insurance policies have been cancelled or voided thanks to an inspired initiative to disrupt criminal activity.

Since starting in 2018, North Wales Police’s Operation Confine has targeted criminals by identifying and prosecuting those involved in vehicle insurance application fraud.

It’s a criminal offence to fail to disclose material information such as unspent convictions when asked by insurance companies. However, Op Confine isn’t about checking whether an individual has forgotten to mention a minor road traffic offence a number of years ago, it’s very much aimed that those who cause the most harm to our communities and use the road network to facilitate their criminal activities.
