Monk looted whilst in surgery


Thieves have looted the home of Swansea defender Garry Monk while he was undergoing knee surgery.

The looters decided to strike somewhere between the hours of 9am on Friday and 2.45pm on Monday afternoon – during this period Monk was having an operation to remove cartilage and bone from his left knee. He is expected to be out of action for six weeks.

A spokesman for Swansea said: ‘Garry and his family are devastated.

‘He has given everything to the club, the local community and the suporters for nearly a decade and doesn’t deserve this.

‘A lot of the items stolen were of great sentimental value and we would urge anyone who knows anything about the robbery to contact the police.’

South Wales Police detective inspector Darren George of Swansea CID said: ‘We are appealing to anyone who saw any visitors to the property on Friday or over the weekend or who saw or heard anything suspicious to come forward.

‘The burglary has resulted in a significant amount of property being stolen, much of which is of great sentimental value to Garry and his family.

‘I would appeal to anyone who has information about the burglary or the stolen property to contact the police.’
