Vehicle Crime

Dear residents,


There has been a rise in the amount of vehicle crime being reported to us. Several work vans in Gabalfa and the surrounding area have been broken into in the last week. Thieves are targeting the vans for tools at various times of the day and night, not just during the night as could be expected.


We understand that having your van or work vehicle stolen, broken into and contents stolen can be very distressing. These recent thefts are being investigated.


When you're parking your van, even for short periods of time, please think carefully about where you are stopping. Parking with the rear or side doors against a wall or very sturdy railings will help to ensure that they can't be prised open. More advice here…
