Police have made a number of arrests in connection with burglaries and attempted break-ins which have occurred in recent months in Bodden Town and East End.
Royal Cayman Islands Police officers have arrested one man in connection with a break in at East End Primary School in November. Some stolen property believed to be taken from the school has also been recovered.
The 19-year-old burglary suspect remained in police custody at press time.
A second man was also arrested in connection with various East End break-ins and two other men were charged with burglary relating to offences committed in Bodden Town. The men have appeared in court and have been remanded in custody.
A fifth man was recently arrested in relation to an attempted break-in which occurred in East End.
‘We have been working hard with the community to tackle offences of burglary,’ said Inspector Ian Yearwood. ‘Aside from issuing burglary packs and spreading crime prevention messages, detectives have been diligently working on cases to identify those responsible and bring them to justice.’
The RCIPS reminds residents that they should do all they can to prevent becoming a victim of a break-in. Doors and windows should always be locked and valuable items should never been left on display.
