Welshpool police will be using CCTV in the hunt for idiots who smash windows and cause damage in the town centre.

Halls on The Cross was the latest business to be hit, with a window being smashed last month. It follows other incidents, with one, at the dog grooming business in Puzzle Square, happening on Mad Friday in the shadow of a CCTV camera (pictured).

Welshpool Town Council operates the town’s system and says it is filming 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, with police having automatic access. And police have confirmed that they will be referring to the footage in their bid to catch any culprits.

“Officers check CCTV as part of crime enquiries if an incident is reported to have taken place in a location covered by the cameras,” said a police spokesperson.

“Dyfed-Powys Police has received a report of criminal damage to a business in Church Street, Welshpool (Halls). A window was broken at a premises sometime between 5.10pm on Friday, January 19 and 8.50am on Saturday, January 20.”

If you have information or a name that caused the damage, contact the police on 101.
