Police investigating the burglary of a pensioner's home in Cardiff say the culprit - or culprits - responsible changed a light bulb, possibly to allow them to see better.
– Detective Constable Geraint Higgins, South Wales Police
"This elderly victim has been left devastated by what has happened.
Whoever was responsible mercilessly ransacked her home to look for something to steal.
The victim has shown tremendous bravery and we are appealing for information that will help us make an arrest.
People may have been offered a mobile phone, or they may have seen or found a purse discarded in the area.
We’d like to speak to anybody who may have noticed somebody acting suspiciously, especially along the footpath from midday until around 3.30pm on Friday afternoon.
