Crime prevention advice to Chepstow and Caldicot residents

We are reminding residents to ensure that their property is secure following several reported burglaries in the Chepstow and Caldicot areas in recent weeks.

Detective Constable Jon Sliczny said: “These are opportunistic thefts, and while we continue to investigate, we would like to remind residents to be vigilant and take all the necessary precautions to protect their properties. These include locking all windows and doors when unattended, and using timer switches so that lights can be turned on for short periods of time when homes are unoccupied.

“Anyone who is a victim of this sort of crime is urged to report it to us immediately so we can carry out enquiries as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information about any criminal offences, or other concerns,  is asked to please contact Gwent Police on 101. You can also direct message us on Facebook or Twitter. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
