There has been yet another case of a car being stolen in Penarth after thieves entered a house – apparently through an open door – and pinched the ignition key

There has been yet another opportunist car theft in Penarth  – in which a thief or thieves have walked into an occupied house and pinched the keys of a car parked outside.

In this latest incident, on Tuesday this week (August 7th) a car was stolen from outside a house in Cwrt-y-Vil Road – even though there was someone at home at the time.

Police have yet to release further details of the theft

Police have yet to reveal details about the theft. With modern car immobilising systems now so secure, thieves have to obtain the ignition keys somehow in order to steal any vehicle.

The Cwrt y Vil Road raid follows a spate of similar so-called “hall table ignition key thefts” in Penarth in April when 2 top-of-the-range cars were stolen from a house Plymouth Road Penarth by thieves who entered the victim’s house at the rear .

Police say car owners in Penarth should keep the ignition keys of their cars out of sight in their homes – and not leave them anywhere where they can be easily found.

Detective Sergeant Chris Warner of South Wales Police has already advised local householders  “to minimise the risk of falling victim to this type of burglar, I’d recommend keeping all keys out of view – ideally taking keys, handbags etc, upstairs when going to bed – and away from windows, doors and catflaps.”

    The F***ing Police must have CCTV and they must show it.

  2. Andrew Worsley says:

    Mark Foster the Police have no CCTV none of the CCTV cameras in Penarth are working if you remember the shoplifter caught on camera recently , it was the shops own camera and even then after 10 days trying to identify the culprit they let the public see the photo as they hadn’t a clue .

  3. Racist Mark (aka Mark Foster) says:

    If that were the case, the only possible conclusion to come to is that they don’t actually want to catch the criminals.

    Perhaps you can explain why they point the camera outside Alan Michael’s house up towards the Town Centre one day and across the Stanwell Road bridge the next

    If people keep their front door unlocked………
