Police investigating the burglary of Swansea City football player Garry Monk have arrested and charged a 33-year-old woman from Bonymaen with handling stolen goods.

A 37-year-old woman from Cwmavon, Port Talbot, has also been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods and is currently on police bail while an investigation continues.

Officers have carried out three warrants where a significant amount of property stolen during the burglary has been found and returned.

The incident happened at Gower Road in Killay, Swansea between 9am on Friday 15th November and 2.45pm on Monday 18th November and resulted in a large quantity of property being stolen.

Among the items taken were high-value watches and jewellery, laptop computers and computer equipment, mobile phones and a Swansea City kitbag marked with the Number 16 and his name.

Detective Constable Chris Grey of Swansea CID said: “As part of our investigation into the burglary we have recovered some of the property and two women have been arrested for handling stolen goods.

“While these arrests are a significant development there is still a large quantity of property outstanding. Much of what was stolen is of huge sentimental value to the victim and his family which we obviously want to trace and recover.

“We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry in order to trace those responsible for the burglary. I appeal to anyone with information about the location of this property to come forward and contact the police or Crimestoppers in complete confidence.”

The 33-year-old woman is due to appear at Swansea Magistrates Court in the new year.

Detective Chief Inspector Jane Mackay added: “Getting burgled is an upsetting experience and we always pursue every line of enquiry to trace those responsible and return stolen property to victims.

“We currently have one of the highest detection rates for house burglaries in the country and we are determined to maintain our record and continue to deliver the best quality of service to victims of crime.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting occurrence number 62130363685.

Gaia Pope no injuries to suggest any other person was involved in her death

Published

on

Dorest Police have confirmed that they do not believe another person was invloved within 19-year-old Gaia Pope’s death.

Those arrestes on suspiscion of her murder have been released from police custody but remain under police investigation.

At around 3pm yesterday, Saturday 18 November 2017, specialist search teams discovered the body of a woman near the coastal path and the field where items of her clothing were located on Thursday 16 November near Swanage.

Although the body has yet to be formally identified, officers are confident that it is Gaia and her family is being supported by specially-trained officers.

Detective Superintendent Paul Kessell, of Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “The post-mortem examination has not identified any injuries to suggest any other person was involved in her death. The cause of death is undetermined pending toxicology.

“The coroner is involved in the oversight of these examinations but at this time this remains an investigation into an unexplained death.

“We would like to take this further opportunity to pass our thoughts to Gaia’s family who we continue to support and who ask for respect of their privacy at this incredibly stressful time.

“Once again I would like to pass our thanks to the public volunteers and partner organisations who have supported this inquiry throughout and have been material in locating Gaia.

“The area where the body was located is likely to remain cordoned off for some time while forensic examinations and searches are concluded.

“Please can I ask that the public no longer attend to assist with searches and that they remain a safe distance from the location. I reiterate this area is steep and slippery in an exposed area close to sea cliffs. The area is covered in dense undergrowth and gorse and can present a hazard. Only specially-trained search and forensic teams are entering the area, assisted by Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service recovery teams.”

Gaia’s family is issuing their thanks to the Find Gaia volunteer group for all their hard work and unwavering support.

Two men aged 19 and 49 and a 71-year-old woman, all from Swanage and known to Gaia, were arrested on suspicion of murder earlier this week and have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

We want to help you but we know you don’t like us being involved

Published

We know you follow this account and want you to see this, We’ve told you previously that we think you are at risk of domestic abuse from your partner. We know you follow this account and we want you to see this.

Lochaber & Skye Police have penned an emotional letter addressed to ‘a young woman in Skye”.

The official Police Scotland account won the best tweeting police account at the UK-wide Police Tweet Awards in 2016 and could just take the 2017 title as next week.

They went on to say “We want to help you and are doing lots with other agencies to try and keep you safe.

“You might not see us, you might not even like us being involved but we are always thinking about how we can help you.”

“Your family and friends have told you they think you are in danger they support you and want you to be safe”.

“We think he’s probably told you, “it won’t happen again”, “I’m sorry”, “I’ll change”, he’s maybe even told you that it’s your fault – IT’S NOT.”

“The violence, threats, degrading comments and controlling behaviour are not the life you need to lead, it can be better.”

“You are not trapped and you are not alone, we can help you get out, your family and friends can help you get out and Scot Women’s Aid can help you get out.

Call us, come to the Police Station, phone someone, speak to local Women’s Aid worker on 01478613365 or 08000271234.”

“There is no excuse for domestic abuse, help is out there.”

Lochaber & Skye Police then went on to thank everyone for the positive response to the domestic abuse appeal.

They told everyone that the meaning behind it was to “reach-out to anyone who may be at risk”.

Hopefully, by sharing this another young lady, lady or even young man or man could be helped from harm.
