South Wales Police concern over stolen uniform

A police uniform could have been stolen from a South Wales Police car for "sinister" reasons, the force admitted.

The uniform was in a bag left on the back seat of the car when a side window was smashed and a bag was taken.

The incident happened in Fairwater in Cardiff when the officer was responding to an incident.

The public has been urged to check the identity of police officers. No police identification or warrant card was stolen.

The uniform was stolen on Monday at around 22:30 BST on Pwllmelin Road near Fairwater Rugby Club,.

No police identification or warrant card was stolen.

A police spokesman said: "It could be kids messing around or something more sinister."

He said there could be "all sorts of reasons" as to why a uniform would be left in the car.

The spokesman added: "Any member of the public who wants to check the identity of a police officer should always ask to see identification."

South Wales Police said anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
