Meticulous police work snares prolific criminals

Created on 14/09/2010 @ 18:24

 Welshpool policeman PC Kieran Day has been praised for his work in bringing two criminals to justice.

Thanks to his tenacious work two prolific criminals have been charged with a spate of offences relating to burglary and criminal damage.
The male suspects, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were charged at the weekend for crimes which took place in Welshpool on July 5.

In addition to a burglary at the Gungrog Road shop, the pair are also charged with a string of criminal damage activity on the same night, which included both commercial and residential properties and ran into hundreds-of-pounds.
It was thanks to the meticulous work of PC Kieran Day that the two suspects were charged. PC Day pursued the investigation over the past two months during which hours of CCTV were viewed and pieced together.
He was integral to creating the extensive file presented to the CPS, which included witnesses that were traced through house-to-house enquiries.
As a result two suspects were traced, who initially denied involvement, but due to the diligent investigative work PC Day carried out, the CPS agreed to charge them with these offences.”
Chief Inspector Martin Tavener said: “Police in Powys continue to carry out campaigns and operations to combat burglaries and criminal damage offences. This excellent piece of instigative work highlights our commitment and sends out a strong and clear message to criminals who commit such crime in Powys.”
