Store suffers break-in bonanza

Owner releases CCTV tape

Burglary suspects hit Reflections
Food4Less not once, but twice early Monday morning prior to the store opening
for business.

Owner Prentice Panton should know;
he caught both incidents on tape when the suspects went inside the store on
Godfrey Nixon Way in George Town to take a television, some video game systems
and games.

All in all, Mr. Panton said he lost
about $4,000 to $5,000 in the heist.

“They were running into the store,
taking stuff out and then running in again,” he said. “They managed to go into
the store twice and the third time they tried the alarm went off.”

According to Mr. Panton, the
store’s alarm system went off around 1.30am Monday, police responded and found
nothing. The first break-in then happened at 3.30am, the second occurred around
5.20am.

In both cases, the alarm system
Reflections has installed failed. Mr. Panton said he’s not sure why.

“I realised watching the tapes
later [Monday] night that at least three different people came inside the
store,” he said. The incident was the third robbery or burglary to occur at
Reflections so far this year.

“That doesn’t count the shoplifting
cases,” Mr. Panton said. “I’ve even stopped reporting those.”

In attempts to catch the suspects,
the store owner has released CCTV video taken from inside the store of the
burglaries that occurred Monday morning.

Reflections. A number of electrical items were stolen during the break-in.

“Enquiries into the incident are
ongoing and any witnesses, anyone with information, is asked to call to
Detective Constable McDonald at George Town Criminal Investigations
Department.”
