Warning against rooftop climbers in Caernarfon

Police have warned youths in Caernarfon to stop climbing onto rooftops.

It follows reports of several incidents in the town centre over the past week, which has led to minor damage and some anti-social behaviour.

Detectives have called on the parents of youths meeting up in the town to warn them about the possible consequences of their actions.

Detective Sergeant Daf Curry said ”robust action” would be taken against those who choose of cause trouble: ”Clearly they are committing offences, for which they could face prosecution. However, more significantly, they are putting themselves and their friends in positions of extreme danger – the consequences of which could be devastating.”

‘Whilst all the incidents will be investigated, I’m eager to work with local businesses and partners to reduce these incidents, but it’s not a problem police can solve on our own.”

”I’m asking the parents of those youths who congregate in the town centre to speak to their children around the hazards of climbing on roofs and the potential consequences and to ask the youths themselves to think about what they are doing.”

Anyone with information about any rooftop climbing or anti-social behaviour in Caernarfon should call North Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Alternatively, contact the police control room online.
