A 79-year-old burglary victim has written an open letter to those responsible. Dorothy Iris Mayer, from Cardiff, had her home ransacked and jewellery stolen.
"Pity you didn’t wait one more day, you would have had the house to yourself and maybe left it as you found it, clean and tidy, not like a tip.
“You obviously went with your muddy boots straight to the bedrooms where you left muddy prints all over my cream carpets, even the goods you threw on the floor, you walked over without any concern.
“I do hope you made a mistake and are caught. If it is stealing to pay for drugs you need help before it kills you, I would like to suggest you are made to go cold turkey and clean up your way of life."
An elderly victim of a burglary in Cardiff has written an open letter to the person responsible.
Mrs Dorothy Iris Mayer, 79, returned home from a hospital appointment to her house in Fairwater on Friday, January 17, to find her front door locked from the inside.
She then discovered that her home had been ransacked by burglars who stole money, jewellery, a purse and a phone. A police investigation is continuing and detectives believe the culprit is local to the area.
The burglary happened the day before Mrs Mayer attended her grandson’s funeral.
