Brac strongman burglar strikes again

| 08/03/2010

(CNS): Following the recent theft of a washing machine and drier on Cayman Brac police are now investigating the theft of a filing cabinet from the Watering Place Post Office after a burglar not put off by the size and weight of potential loot made of with it. Sometime between 11.30 am on Saturday, 6 March, and 9.00 this morning, Monday 8 March, the three drawer cabinet, which is cream in colour, disappeared. The drawers contained a small amount of cash, stamps and cell phone top-up cards. “The cabinet is heavy therefore it’s likely that a vehicle may have been used to transport it. I would ask anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area of the post office over the weekend to contact me,” PC John Morrison said.

Sister islands Chief Inspector Malcolm Kay called on Brackers to be on their guard as crime was coming to their neighbourhoods too. “This is the second burglary reported to us in a couple of weeks on Cayman Brac. Unfortunately times are changing and, even on the Brac, if people see an opportunity to make a quick buck then they will take that opportunity," he added.

"Together we need to do everything we can to cut down the possibility of our homes and businesses being violated. If anyone requires information about how to make their home or their business more secure, and less attractive to thieves, I would be happy to meet with them either at Cayman Brac police station or at their premises to pass on crime prevention advice,” Kay said.

Anyone with information about the burglary, or who wishes to meet with CI Kay, should contact Cayman Brac police station on 948-0331. Information about the crime can also be passed to Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).
