Burglars take shop till
14th July 2017

Thieves have left a shop owner devastated when they broke into a shop in and took the till while he was away on holiday.

Owner Josh Shakespeare-Smith, 20, was in Turkey when he heard the news his shop in Treherbert had been broken into, Walesonline reported.

The raiders took the till from Treherbert Hardware and Pet Supplies in the early hours – but nothing else was taken in the burglary.

A shocked Josh said: “The door was smashed or kicked in and the till was taken. There was a small amount of money in it, which is lucky, to be honest.

“I’m glad only the till was taken. It could have been a lot worse. I try to work my hardest and it’s all just been taken like that.”

Josh said he would have to close the store, which he has owned for only a few months, while repairs were carried out.
