Broken windows and break-ins

Welshpool town centre’s week of mindless crime continued into the weekend with another business left cleaning up following vandalism.

A huge window at the former Rowlands Chemist (pictured), which is soon to open as a clothes shop, is boarded up following a weekend incident, and it is coincidently next to the Halls window that was smashed a couple of weeks back.

Police say they have a suspect identified and have blamed drunken behaviour.

“Sadly, despite officers being visible 500 yards from the location, revellers cause mindless damage to shop front. Suspect identified,” they Tweeted.

It comes following a miserable week when a number of local businesses were broken into on two separate nights, however police have arrested a suspect in connection with those offences.

“A suspect was arrested, but insufficient to charge at this time so enquiries are continuing,” said a police spokesperson.

The recent problems have raised questions over the effectiveness of the town’s CCTV system as a deterrent. It is financed and operated by the Town Council and accessed by the police who have not confirmed whether this latest incident was caught on camera.

If you have any information on these crimes, call Welshpool Police on 101.
