Would-be shoplifters are being warned that Dyfed Powys Police have plain clothes officers working in the busy town centres in the run up to Christmas.

Blending in with other shoppers, they’ll be on the lookout for criminals over the coming weeks.

“This is a warning to criminals that just because they can’t spot a police officer doesn’t mean there isn’t one close by,” said Inspector Alun Samuel. “Plain clothes officers will be out regularly during this busy shopping period, and they’ll be looking out for pickpockets, purse thieves and shoplifters.

Shoppers and store owners should feel reassured by this undercover presence and we hope it persuades the criminals to stay away.”
