Anglesey smash-and-grab perfume thieves hunted

Police have appealed for help after thieves smashed their way into an Anglesey pharmacy shop and stole perfume.

The incident happened between 03:00 and 03:30 GMT on Tuesday at the Rowland's Pharmacy on Ffordd Caergybi in Llanfairpwll.

Two people were seen fleeing the area and police are also keen to trace a vehicle seen acting suspiciously.

North Wales Police said one of the suspects was wearing a black balaclava.

Inspector Kev Bratherton said: "From enquiries made so far two people were seen running from the area towards Ffordd Penmynydd.

"Over the last 12 months we have seen a steady decrease in crime on the island and with the continued support and vigilance from the local community I'm sure we can identify those responsible."

One of the men seen in the area is described as wearing a black balaclava, black body-warmer jacket with a grey hood and sleeves, white trainers and turquoise gloves.

The second individual was wearing a blue top with a yellow collar or hood, black hat and dark pants.

Police say the car they are interested in tracing is a silver Vauxhall Astra SXi, seen in the Lon Dyfnia area of Llanfairpwll at about 09:30 GMT on Tuesday.

North Wales Police said anyone who has any information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
