Officers on patrol discover stolen goods

| 19/07/2010

(CNS): In the early hours of Saturday morning (17 July), officers engaged in mobile patrol duties in the George Town area stopped a suspicious vehicle in South Church Street at about 4.30am. The officers discovered a quantity of stolen property within the Mazda minivan, including a lap topcomputer, cell phones and a handbag. The two men in the vehicle, aged 18 and 28 years, were arrested on suspicion of burglary. Enquiries revealed that those items and a Hyundai motor car had been stolen from a home in South Church Street a short time earlier. The officers involved in the enquiry traced the stolen vehicle a short distance away.

About 5.00am that morning the householder awoke to find the property missing. As he was telephoning the police to report the matter he was advised that officers had arrested two suspects and that his property had been recovered.

Detective Sergeant Richard Scott is appealing for anyone who may have any information about the crime to contact George Town CID on 949-4222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477(TIPS).

    Great job RCIPS! I must admit I have been critical of the RCIPS and will continue to do so when necessary. Likewise I will commend them when appropriate and this is about 4 or 5 incidents in quick succession where RCIPS patrols and prompt action have either prevented a more serious crime or detected and apprended offenders very promptly. Please RCIPS, keep up this pattern, it’s obvious that some new approach to crimefighting seems to be working.

    Thank you. Stay safe and keep us likewise.
