Third man busted for West Bay burglaries

| 10/02/2010

(CNS): Update Thursday 12:15pm –  Police have now arrested a third man in connection with a number of burglaries and attempted burglaries in the West Bay area Tuesday night. The 30-year-old was arrested in the West Bay area yesterday evening. Two men aged 32 and 35 years were also arrested yesterday and police say all three men remain in police custody pending further enquiries. Police say that between midnight Tuesday, 9 February, and 3.00am Wednesday, 10 February, six burglaries and two attempted burglaries occurred in the West Bay area. Homes in Watercourse Road, Hillandale Close, Windstart Drive, Cadbury Link and Alexandra Close were targeted. In most of the incidents small amounts of cash were stolen.

A 32-year-old man was arrested early Wednesday morning and a 35-year-old man was arrested around lunchtime Wednesday in relation to the incidents.

Detective Sergeant Collins Oremule of West Bay CID is appealing for anyone who may have been in the relevant areas between midnight last night and 3.00 a.m. this morning, or who has any information about the crimes, to contact him on 949-3999.

Chief Inspector Angelique Howell, Area Commander, West Bay said, “The enquiry team have been very diligent in arresting the two individuals we believe are responsible for the string of burglaries last night. I’d like to reassure the communities of West Bay that this criminal behaviour will not be tolerated and that we are stepping up our patrols in the area particularly in the early hours of the morning when these types of crime occur.

“But can I once again remind people of the simple steps they can take to make their homes safer. In a few of last night’s incidents access was gained through insecure windows or doors, or windows and doors with ineffective locks. I would urge people to make sure that they secure their property and help us cut down the opportunities available to thieves on the island.”

Anyone with information regarding the incidents should contact West Bay CID on 949-3999 or call Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).

      Exellent work RCIP and hope that convictions can be secured.  Now all we need are laws that will put away these criminal scum types for a few decades with hard labour to pay for their upkeep in northward.
