“This burglary happened overnight and although the area would have been quiet somebody may have been disturbed and seen something.

“We believe that more than one person would have carried out the burglary and they would have travelled to the site in a vehicle.

“If you saw anything suspicious in the area last night or this morning, please contact us as soon as possible.

“Police would like to thank Robin Hill Park for their co-operation and assistance.”

Anyone with information can contact DC Crane at Newport CID by phoning 101. Information can be given anonymously by phoning the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
