Burgled! Cardiff, Cathays

dibblersan Forumite Posts: 588 Forumite
I got burgled last night and I'm looking for a little support and advice.

Not a huge amount was taken - crime of opportunity.

I've written up a list, got it photocopied and handed it out, but can anyone suggest and likely places I've missed?

I've gone to cash converters and blockbusters on albony road and in central game, cex, pc world on the off chance, money box on the off chance.

Crime ref no: 62130021784

If you live in Cardiff and someone tries to sell you a load of these, (you have reason to think they might not be legit) please pm me and let me know.

What was nicked was:
An Xbox 360
Samsung smart phone
Kobo ereader
Sanyo digital projecter and case

Xbox games:
Ghost recon advanced warfighter
Ghost recon future soldier
Halo 3 (two copies)
Halo odst
Halo reach
Red dead redemption
Mass effect
Mass effect 3
Left4dead 2
Rainbow 6 Las Vegas
Resident evil 5
Assassins creed 3
Assassins creed revelations
Assassins creed brotherhood
Far cry 2
Aliens v's predator
Fallout new Vegas
Dragon age 2
Lost planet.

Thank you.
One of the hardest of all life lessons is this:

Just because I feel bad doesn’t necessarily mean someone else is doing something wrong.

Just because I feel good doesn’t necessarily mean what I am doing is right.

    Cathays is an area which is well knownfor burglaries, so I would definitely advise that you look at security measures for your property. You can ask your neighbourhood policing team for advice, or have a look online.

    One additional place to check is ebay, as many items get sold on there which are stolen. It would be difficult to tell if they are yours, but if you see one seller who is selling these items, or lots of cardiff based sales of eachitem, you may be able to take action.

    Its very unlikely you'll get the items back, but i do hope you can get them replaced by your insurance company.
