Police in Cardiff are investigating a burglary of a house in Waun Fach, Pentwyn, which occurred sometime between 10.00am and midday on Thursday 23rd October.

Access was gained to the property after a lower glass panel to the front door was smashed.

Among the stolen items was a collection of approximately 200 Roman coins including rare Republican coins, contained in a home made black coin box with 3 felt coin trays inside. In addition a silver coloured folder containing a collection of historical bank notes and stamps from the time of World War 2 and Iraqi notes from the time of Saddam Hussein.  A black Fujitsu Lifebook was also stolen form the property.

Detective constable Rhian Clayton from Rumney CID said: “This burglary took place in broad daylight and whoever was responsible smashed a glass panel to the front door which would have made a lot of noise.
