Police investigate possible Lakeside home invasion

| 08/03/2012

Crime-Scene.jpg(CNS): A spokesperson for the RCIPS confirmed Thursday evening that the police had received a report earlier in the week concerning a possible home invasion at Lakeside Villas in George Town. The police said that the report of masked men invading a home in the early morning hours of Tuesday when three residents were said to have been tied up was not reported to the police until sometime after the incident had occurred.  “We can confirm we received a report late Tuesday morning of an incident at Lakeside that had occurred some 12 hours earlier. The facts of the matter have not yet been established and police enquiries are on-going,” the spokesperson stated.

The police were unable to give any descriptions or further details of the incident or how the suspects got into the apartment.

According to the local television news channel Cayman27 the residents of the apartment say four masked men armed with machetes and a gun entered an apartment at the complex and tied up the 3 occupants before stealing cash and jewellery but the occupants were said not to have been harmed during the home invasion.

Cayman 27 reports that the details of the robbery were circulated among tenants at the apartments by the Lakeside management which says it’s reviewing current security arrangements at the complex with a view to making improvements.
