Woman in court for burglary

| 22/04/2014

(CNS): Police who have charged a 26-year-old woman with several George Town burglaries are appealing to members of the public who may also have been victims of the female burglar to come forward. The woman was due in court Tuesday to face charges of aggravated burglary, two counts of burglary, disorderly conduct and threats to kill a police officer after she was apprehended on Friday night. The arrest is in connection to an incident where a female burglar was reportedly disturbed at an address in Greenwood Drive by the male resident, who came home at around 10pm and found the intruder. The woman allegedly threatened the man with a knife before making her escape on foot.

An RCIPS spokesperson said that the burglaries the suspect is charged with all occurred in the past two weeks in the Greenwood Drive and School House Road areas of George Town.

Police officers arrested the woman in that area following the report from the man who had been threatened and further enquiries connected the suspect to the other break-ins. During the investigation a knife and a number of stolen articles were recovered.

Detective Sergeant Sean Bryan of the Burglary Team is asking any other victims whose premises may have been burgled in the area who have not reported the matters to the Police to contact him at the George Town Police Station at 949-4222. DS Bryan warned residents that the burglary offenses involved premises left unsecured and which were specifically targeted for this reason, whether occupants are home or not
