Information provided by a Council Official for the Local Councillors. Jayne has telephoned the officer and the update is as follows :-
“There was a break-in at Rhiwbina Library on Saturday night. The thieves broke in through a panel in the rear door and ransacked the main desk area, taking the staff PCs, one public PC, scanners, damaging the till and creating a mess around the main staff desk area.
County Security were called out and made the building safe. Staff are expecting the police this morning to carry out scene of crimes inspection.
Most of the building is closed to the public and will remain so until the police have completed their investigations and the area can then be cleaned and tidied. The public are currently able to return stock using the RFID machines, and can access the public PCs and children’s area. The rest of the building will be out of commission probably for the rest of the day.
I have asked ICT whether they can lend us some PCs that we can use until we manage to get permanent replacements. I will be contacting the insurance section once we have a complete list of what has been taken.
I will let you know when the building is fully up and running once again”.
