He added: “We would like to thank the public for their support and understanding. The response to our media appeal provided vital intelligence to support our investigation, which we are extremely grateful for.”
Superintendent Anthony Evans said: “Incidents of this nature are extremely rare in the Dyfed-Powys area. The community may have seen an increased presence of police officers within the local area as part of the investigation and also to offer reassurance to residents.
