Burglar chased down after tip

A burglary suspect was caught and charged this week after police responded to a tip in central George Town. 

Royal Cayman Islands Police said a resident reported a burglary in progress at Sterling Estates in George Town around 10:15 a.m. Monday. When officers arrived, a man who was found near the home fled. 

Police chased down and arrested the 38-year-old suspect, identified in court as Shane Edward Connor, who was charged Tuesday with one count of burglary and one count of attempted burglary. The burglary charge alleges theft from an apartment of electronic goods with a total value of approximately $1,850.  

The alleged burglary attempt was at an apartment in the same complex. 

Following his court appearance, Connor was remanded in custody at Northward Prison.
