Police nab East End burglars

| 19/12/2008

(CNS): Police have arrested several men in the eastern districts in relation to a number of break-ins to property. A 19-year-old man remains in police custody  over a break-in which occurred at East End Primary School in November and another man has been arrested in connection with various other East End break-ins. Two men have been charged and remanded in custody over burglary relating to offences committed in Bodden Town and a fifth man was also arrested in relation to an attempted break-in which also occurred in East End.

 Police said some stolen property has also been recovered as well as the arrests and charges, as a result of the work of officers from the Criminal Investigation Department.   “We have been working hard with the community to tackle offences of burglary,” said Inspector Ian Yearwood, (pictured) second in charge of the eastern districts. “Aside from issuing burglary packs and spreading crime prevention messages, detectives have been diligently working on cases to identify those responsible and bring them to justice.”

The RCIPS is reminding residents that they should do all they can do prevent becoming a victim of a break-in. Doors and windows should always be locked and valuable items should never been left on display. Residents should keep an eye on their neighbourhoods and report any suspicious activity to police or Crime Stopper on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
