    Crowdfunding Appeal After Elderly Llay Couple Targeted By Thieves ‘checking on storm damage’

    I have created this crowdfunding page to raise some funds in order to show the victims of this despicable crime that the community care enough to rally together to try and raise some money to replace some of the amount stolen.

    Please read the article below which explains the crime.

    Two men posing as police officers entered the home of an elderly couple and stole a substantial quantity of cash.The incident happened at around 7.45pm on Monday, October 16 in Watts Dyke Llay, near Wrexham.

    The men, one wearing a Hi-Viz jacket, claimed they were police officers checking on storm damage and insisted they enter the house to turn off the water stop-cock.

    After they had left the couple noticed that money had been stolen and a search made of a bedroom cupboard.

    One suspect is described as tall, in his 30’s, and of large build. He was wearing a black woolly jumper, a peaked cap and a yellow Hi-Viz jacket.

    The other male is described as in his 20’s, slim and about 5ft 6ins tall. He had a moustache and was wearing a black hoody and black trousers.

    DI Mark Hughes said; “This was a particularly mean crime committed against an elderly couple in their own home. We are keen to hear from any witnesses or anyone who may know who these suspects are, to contact us on 101 quoting reference V157593.”

      Hi, I have started this crowdfunding page to try to raise some funds for the couple robbed in their home in Llay to try to replace at least some of the money stolen from them. It’s a despicable and mean crime that has been carried out on an elderly couple in their own home.
