New warning about men attempting to stop cars on Murco road

A WOMAN has posted a warning on Facebook after her husband’s car was approached by three men on the old Murco road, near Milford Haven.

Angela Ryan warned locals to drive carefully on the road and to not stop for strangers.

Angela said on Facebook: “At approximately 4:45am, Mark was driving to work along the road by the Fairways (Esso road).

“Three men ran out from the right hand side of the road, shouting and waving their arms for him to stop.

“Because it was dark and the grass verge is so wide the in-car camera did not pick them up.

“This has been reported to the police, but we would like to make everyone aware.

“If this happens to you do not stop.”

Another woman, Kay Thomas, also posted a similar warning on the social network.

In January, there were multiple reports of men trying to stop cars between Herbandston and Tiers Cross.

After investigating the claims, Dyfed-Powys Police issued a statement which said: “Following the statements issued in respect of reports of small groups of males attempting to flag vehicles down during the hours of darkness in location on the old Murco unclassified road between Hebrandston and Tiers Cross, Dyfed-Powys Police is aware that understandably this has caused concern in the community.

“We would reassure everyone that high visibility vehicle patrols are being carried out in the area and we urge members of the public to be alert but not alarmed when travelling this section of the road.

“We are continuing to conduct enquiries into these incidents and ask anyone with information on this matter or anyone who may have seen anything suspicious to call 101.”
