A SPATE of incidents in Rhoose involving overnight thefts from parked cars and burglaries has caused police to issue crime prevention warnings.
Rhoose neighbourhood beat manager, police constable Nicola Owen, said recent weeks had seen a number of thefts from unlocked cars parked on Beaufort Way and Fontygary Road.
She said: “If you leave your vehicle unlocked or your possessions on display there is an increased risk that you will become a victim of crime.
“All too often motorists leave personal belongings visible in their cars when they have parked and left them overnight.”
Police are also investigating two recent burglaries in the area. A house was broken into on Fonmon Road, Rhoose overnight between Friday, September 13 and the following morning when a laptop computer was stolen.
Anyone with information, should call PC Nicola Owen at Barry police station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
