Gold worth thousands stolen from Pyle flat
Gold coins and bars worth around £30,000 have been stolen from a flat in Pyle, Bridgend.
Some time between 4pm on Sunday, October 13 and 2pm the following Tuesday, the items were stolen by somebody who had gained access through a kitchen window.
Fifteen 1oz coins and bars were stolen together with a Kindle note book.
The gold was kept in a maroon coloured, velvet draw string bag, which police believe may have been discarded by the burglar.
DS Paul Mason, said: “The property stolen is very distinctive. We believe the person who stole the items will try to sell it on to a collector or will try to weigh the gold in for cash.
“We are appealing for people working in pawn shops and cash-for-gold type set-ups to be vigilant.
“We are also appealing to anybody who suspects they know who was responsible to come forward. Perhaps they have come across the maroon velvet bag.
“Of course, anyone who buys the items face being prosecuted for handling stolen goods.”
