Flooring retailer in ram raid attack
A South Wales flooring retailer was ram raided in the early hours of the morning.
Rob Santwris World of Carpets in Lower Dock Street, Newport was driven into about 4am yesterday by a yellow car.
Santris, who founded the company in 1993, found the damage when he arrived for work at 7am.
‘It’s crazy. Most of the stuff here is free samples of carpets and heavy stock out the back, so we never really worry about burglary. You would have to have a forklift truck to take anything,’ he said.
A laptop worth £200 was stolen and the store’s front damaged.
‘The door was only put in in January. You feel for people who come home and it’s their own personal stuff gone. I just feel angry. At the end of the day it’s my shop.’
