Cheap TVs could be stolen

| 06/10/2009

(CNS): Police are looking for 12 flat screen TVs that were taken during a burglary in West Bay last month and are reminding the public that buying goods believed to be stolen is a serious offence which could result in jail time. Two suspects have been arrested for the burglary, which took place on 28 September. The RCIPS reports that a condo on North West Point Road was broken into and seven 40 inch, along with seven 32 inch Sony Bravia, LCD HDTV, flat screen TVs were taken.

These items were brand new and still in their boxes. Two of the TVs were recovered and investigations continue in locating the other 12 still missing.

On Sunday, 4 October, officers from the West Bay Police Station Criminal Investigation Department arrested a 23-year-old man on suspicion of burglary and the following day, Monday 5, a 22-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of burglary.

West Bay CID officer DS Oremule is appealing to anyone who has been offered a TV at a low cost or knows of someone who is selling them to please come forward and inform the police, stating “handling stolen goods is a serious offence and what people don’t realize is that it can incur a fine and imprisonment. “

“If you are uncertain about the source of cheap goods, please do not buy them. Inform your local police station or call Crime Stoppers.” added DS Oremule.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers 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.
