Cops net another burglary suspect red-handed

| 08/11/2013

(CNS): A man trying to break into a downtown George Town restaurant was caught in the act by the police early Friday morning. The RCIPS said that the 53-year-old man is now in custody at the police station after being apprehended at around 1:31am as he was attempting to gain entry into the Fish Shack, located on North Church Street on the waterfront.  The officers were said to be conducting proactive duties when they observed the man trying to get in to the premises. The police became suspicious of the man’s activities and went to investigate.

Following what appears to have been some resistance from the would-be burglary suspect he was arrested not only on suspicion of attempted burglary and going equipped for stealing but also for  assaulting police.

“This clearly demonstrates the dedication of the RCIPS in our commitment to fighting crime. The officers involved are to be commended,” said Chief Inspector Angelique Howell, officer in charge of George Town.

    So they were on patrol. As is expected of them, on occasion.
