| 17/10/2013

(CNS): With the latest crime statistics from the RCIPS showing that there were 540 burglaries between the start of this year and the end of September, police have charged another suspect. A 31-year-old man is due to appear in court today in connection with a burglary in Bodden Town Road, near Breakers. The suspect was arrested at the weekend with property on him from a break-in along Bodden Town Road. Police said that at about 12:25am on Sunday, 13 October, officers were on uniform patrol in Sea View Road when they saw the man, who was wanted on warrant, riding a bicycle.

The police stopped the cyclist and a search uncovered that he was in possession of property which was subsequently identified as having been stolen from a house in Bodden Town Road a few minutes earlier, an RCIPS spokesperson stated.

The suspect has been charged with one count of burglary.

    540 burglaries is a staggering number and would constitute a non-trivial percentage of the number of homes on Cayman.  From here it's not a matter of if you will get burgled, but when and how often.
