Halfway Illegal Rave Update

Dyfed Powys Police is investigating an illegal rave that took place in Halfway Forest over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend.

The rave caused disruption to the trails in Halfway Forest with a considerable amount of mess and rubbish left behind. Natural Resources Wales quickly employed local contractors to perform a clean up and have estimated that the illegal event will cost them between £2,000 and £3,000.

Chief inspector Matt Scrase, Dyfed Powys Police said:

Gatherings such as illegal raves can cause considerable anxiety to the community and can be extremely dangerous. We have made several arrests in connection with this rave and we will not tolerate people trespassing on private land causing considerable damage and disturbing the community.

We want people to come to Dyfed-Powys and enjoy what we have to offer, but I would urge people to think twice before coming here to behave irresponsibly and spoil it for other people.

He went on to add:

Farmers, landowners and local communities are encouraged to report any suspicious activity immediately to the Police; this may be an unusual numbers of vehicles, especially camper vans, vans or trucks in the locality, illegal trespassers who may be doing ‘recce’ of sites in advance of the event.

I can assure local communities that Police will take the appropriate action to deter illegal gatherings and deal robustly with any criminal offences discovered or disclosed.
