| 03/07/2014

(CNS): A 44-year-old man was arrested yesterday on Cayman Brac on suspicion of stealing a TV from a house last Friday. Cops arrested the man Wednesday following an investigation into the burglary, which happened in theBight area and where a 40-inch Panasonic Plasma TV was swiped from the home. After the arrest, officers from the RCIPS, customs, immigration, the fire service and the special constabulary conducted an extensive search of the bush area along the Ashton Reid Drive and the TV was recovered. “Fortunately burglary is a rare occurrence in the Sister Islands and we aim to keep it that way,” said Chief Inspector Owens said.

“Iwant to praise the work of my officers and the assistance of the partner agencies on the Brac. I only have to pick up the phone and the response is immediate from the departments involved. To search a thick bush area in the middle of the day for an extensive period is not easy but they just get it done,” he added.

Anyone with information in relation to criminal activities  is asked to contact the Cayman Brac Police Station on 948-0331, the RCIPS tip-line or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).
