MORE than 100 solar panels have been stolen from a site.

A total of 168 panels were taken from the solar farm near St George, Abergele. The thieves also targeted a solar site at Llanelian, Colwyn Bay.

PC Will Jones warned people not to fall foul of a black market in green energy as the panels could potentially be used on domestic and commercial buildings.

He said: “168 panels were taken from a container on the solar site near St George overnight on Wednesday and a solar site at Llanelian was also targeted on Wednesday or Thursday night.

“Those responsible clearly knew what they were doing and would have used a vehicle to take the panels and equipment away."

Anyone who saw a vehicle on or near the sites is asked to contact police on 101.
