Burglar gets ‘cold welcome’ from restaurant staff

| 16/05/2011

(CNS): Police were on the scene at a harbour front restaurant in George Town in the early hours of Sunday morning after staff trapped a would-be burglar in the kitchen’s refrigerator. After catching the burglar in the act, staff at Paradise restaurant on South Church Street reportedly held the villain in the walk-in fridge until local law enforcement officers arrived at the location, where the man was allegedly arrested. Police have not yet confirmed details of the arrest. Meanwhile, CNS has also received unconfirmed reports of two assaults in the early hours of Saturday night which are said to have take place inside and outside a George Town nightclub.

Police have not yet confirmed the details but CNS has been informed that a woman was assaulted inside the club with a bottle and a man was stabbed outside the same nightspot.

CNS also understands that Travel Pros & Aladdin Tours on Dr Roys Drive were also targeted over the long weekend holiday break. The office glass was smashed  but the burglars or vandals got away before the police arrived.

Check back to CNS later for more details on this and other crime related stories over the holiday weekend.

    With this rise in the people finally taken action against these criminals, it makes one wonder if we shouldn't be encouraging folks to just that and take action to protect themselves and their property because experience is shown that the police are simply unable to capture any of these criminals.

    I would love to see an FOI done to find out how many unsolved criminal cases we have on the books. It has to be in the thousands.

    I would like to say thank you to those who locked the "alleged" robber in the freezer.

    Normally I want the police to show up instantly to reports of crime. In this case, provided that there was asecure lock on the freezer door so he could not get away, I would not have minded if they would have finished investigating all of the unsolved crimes on the island before showing up.

    Pity it wasn't a walk-in freezer! Cops could have taken their time getting statements etc while the perp "chilled out" inside.

    Paradise – 1

    "Cool and the Gang" – 0
