Officers say thieves broke into a number of houses in Amlwch, and stole several items.

They're asking anyone who was in the village and may have seen anything suspicious to get in touch.

Between Saturday night, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th, thieves broke into a number of houses, garages and vehicles on the Glorian Estate in Amlwch and stole several items. I am therefore very keen to hear from anyone who was in the village and who may have seen any suspicious activity or who may know who was responsible for the break-ins. This was a despicable series of crimes on families as Christmas approaches.

If anyone has any information about this burglary I’d like to hear from them. It is also worth reminding all house holders to be vigilant at all times and always ensure your property is locked and secured and if they see any suspicious behaviour to let us know immediately.

A Bangor woman who died after a collision on the B4547 at Pentir on Friday afternoon has been described as "a special wife, mother, daughter and sister" by her family.

Susan Jane Owen, originally from Anglesey, died after being involved in a collision between a white BMW car and a VW transporter van.

It is believed that an item fell from the roof of the transporter and collided with the BMW travelling in the opposite direction.

Not only have I lost a wife, I have lost my love and best friend in the world. There will be a void left in my life after her. I'm so lucky to have enjoyed 28 years of marriage together. 28 years of bringing up two sons who are stars in the eyes of their mother.

'Arrogant' ex-Anglesey councillor jailed for shining torch at RAF jets

Former council housing official turned businessman John Arthur Jones, 66, was this afternoon branded 'profoundly' arrogant by a crown court judge and jailed for 18 months.

Jones was said to be on a mission against the RAF in a bid to get the jets to stop flying above his home at Plas Cefni on a 100-year-old airstrip at RAF Mona.

When he failed to persuade them the prosecution at Mold Crown Court claimed that he took the law into his own hands, and shone a powerful light at the fast jets while pilots were being trained in night flying for front line combat.

That could have had devastating consequences causing disorientation and the loss of night vision. One young pilot was flying solo for the first time when he was blinded.

“You possess an abundance of self belief in your own ability to achieve things, which transcends all reason and which is born out of profound arrogance. “The consequences could have been devastating. Your conduct became a campaign over a long period of time.”

– Judge Geraint Walters,

Throughout the investigation and trial, he has shown no remorse for his actions or recognition of the potential dangers and implications to not only the RAF personnel but also the wider community.
