POLICE are urging residents to remain vigilant after a moped was stolen from the Deeside area.

On Friday December 31, the vehicle was stolen from outside the Iceland shop located at the Deeside Industrial Estate, Connah's Quay.

Police say this follows on from other similar incidents which took place on the industrial estate in early December.

During those incidents, a moped and some cable was stolen by thieves.

A statement from NWP on the latest matter read: "On December 31 2021 there was another theft of a moped at Iceland on the industrial Estate. Two persons on a motorbike with no VRM entered the site and stole it from the car park. North Wales Police were on the sites within minutes but could not locate the vehicle that later hit cameras.

"Both persons were wearing helmets. The driver rider was wearing a bright yellow/green helmet.

"Please make staff aware and see if any locations of such potential targets are monitored if possible.

"Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity via the North Wales Police control room on 999 if emergency or 101 if non-emergency."
