The middle-aged intruder was caught on CCTV taking cash from the newly-opened Blush salon in Llandaff, Cardiff, after smashing his way into the shop with a brick. Salon owner Vicky Thomas had only opened her business six weeks ago, and said she is devastated at the break-in. 'It has been a really stressful time opening the new business,' said the mother-of-four. 'It went over time and we had a lot of problems so this was the last thing that we needed. 'It is not just about the money that was taken, it is about the hassle that has been caused trying to sort it out. “He can be seen just prowling around on the CCTV - I just cannot believe how brazen he was.' Ms Thomas was alerted by telephone on Sunday morning and told that her business had been broken into overnight. The thief was caught on camera at around 1.39am and got access through the back of the salon by smashing a window with a brick. 'It is amazingly brazen,' said Ms Thomas. 'I keep the lights on at night so anyone going past would have been able to see him and he took his time going around, even counting the money. 'There have been a number of break-ins at businesses in the area and I have since learnt that a number of businesses in the area have been targeted.' Police in Cardiff said they are investigating the burglary and have appealed for information. A spokesman for South Wales Police said: 'Access was gained to a hairdressing salon in Llandaff High Street after a rear window was smashed and a quantity of cash stolen from the till.'
