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.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
