South Wales Police have issued a warning about a continuing crimewave in the Penarth Marina area.
Police say a number of cars were broken-into on Sunday June 10th – the day of the start of the 10th leg of the Volvo Ocean Race from Cardiff to Gothenburg when there were large crowds at the Penarth end of the barrage, the barrage car park was full and the Penarth Quays Marina itself was extremely busy.
South Wales police have not said specifically which areas of the Marina were targeted – but are urging all local residents to “lock their cars and vans” and to remove any valuable items from them .
Penarth Marina residents are becoming increasingly concerned about what they say is a lack of action by South Wales Police and a failure to have officers patrolling the area regularly.
On the night of May the 18th criminals were filmed by a resident’s automatic CCTV camera breaking into cars in the Marina’s residential area with apparent impunity – but the video has yet to be published by the police [ See https://tinyurl.com/y9ajk8yw ]
