Burglaries in the Blackwood area – please be vigilant!

Officers are reminding residents in the Blackwood area to be vigilant following a number of burglaries in the area.

Burglaries have been reported in the Bargoed, Pengam and Cefn Fforest areas between Sunday 5th and Tuesday 7th November. The properties were left unlocked and the offenders broke in and stole car keys.

Officers are reminding everyone to make sure they lock their properties, even if they’re away just for a short time or if they’re in their property to keep their doors locked. PS Carl Morgan said, “Our advice is simple but please make sure you keep your doors locked – it takes seconds for a burglar to open your door and steal items found close by. Try to keep valuables such as car keys and handbags away from the door and out of sight – don’t make it easy for thieves. Also, if you see anything suspicious in your local area, please call 101 to report it.”
