The local jewellery shop was broken into on Tuesday, when two raiders hurled a rock through the window. £600 of jewellery was stolen, as well as a further £900 worth of damage was caused.

Ms Robert, who is also a lecturer at Wrexham’s Glyndwr Univeristy said:
“We had already given notice that we were closing the business in six to seven weeks time, but this has just cemented the decision.
It has been my baby for 12 years and, for the first eight years there were no problems.
However, this is the fourth time in four years we have been targeted and because the insurance has gone up, it doesn’t cover the excess, so I will have to cover the costs.
We have had lovely messages of support from local people, but it is sadly a minority that are doing this.
It is sad to close it, but also after what has happened, the predominant feeling is relief.”
North Wales Police have launched an appeal to find the two offenders.
PC Kevin Casey said: “We believe the pair left the scene on foot, heading down beside the Bee Hotel towards Tesco.
“We’d like to hear from anyone who might know anything about the burglary, anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone who may have seen these items for sale anywhere.”
