    A criminal living in Penarth and on Cornerswell Road? His poor parents, they will have to move. If word gets around it will bring the house prices down. Say no it social housing, other wise this will become the norm.. It was most probably an ASDA knife, he should of used a Global. A man with no taste.

    • Sharron says:

      So he’s a criminal because of social housing are you serious ?????

    • John says:

      Cornerswell Road is hardly Park Lane now is it? There’s a right bunch of roughs living along there.

  2. Frank Evans says:

    5 robberies and only 10,000 quid.
    Less than the council tax on 5 houses in Penarth. Which is robbed to pay for pointless vanity projects

    2 bonkers responses to a serious issue 😡

    • Peter Church says:

      Not that bonkers, £10,000 is peanuts compared to online scams, which net millions and very few are caught. Only stupid people who are not tech savy do bank robberies these days!

  4. M.T. says:

    Did anybody know a Post Office in Penarth had been robbed?It wasn’t reported here or anywhere else a far as I can tell!Why is this information not released?
