Police arrest hammer wielding intruder

| 06/02/2012

(CNS): An intruder who made off with only a bottle of rum after breaking into one Seven Mile Beach condo and attempting to break into a second was arrested by police in Bodden Town last week. The RCIPS confirmed Monday that officers were called to the Island Club Condos on the West Bay Road after an occupant found an intruder inside the apartment armed with a hammer sometime before 10 on Tuesday night. The would-be burglar had demanded cash but when the occupant shouted out the offender made off with a bottle of rum. Shortly after police received a report from a neighbouring condo at Casa Caribe where the burglar had attempted a similar condo invasion but he was unable to gain entry.

Police said the suspect left the condos in a vehicle and a short time later that vehicle was stopped by police in the Bodden Town area and a man was arrested. A police spokesperson said the suspect has since been bailed while enquiries continue and confirmed that no-one was hurt during the incidents.
