A press release from the Force’s Public Relations Office indicates that the incident occurred around 5.20am on Thursday (December 03).
It further revealed that the occupants of the house, two males and one female, stated that they woke to the presence of three males in their residence. The assailants took several items including one Samsung Note 2, a Samsung Note 3, one laptop charger, three watches, cell phones, ATM cards, one MAC Book and cash in the amount of EC$500.00.

Assistant Commissioner of Police with responsibility for Criminal Investigations, Ian Queeley has been quoted as saying “this is troubling. This type of crime is of great concern. Our families must be able to go to bed at night knowing that they are safe in the comfort of their homes, safe from intruders.”
He also encouraged residents to ensure their homes are secured before they go to bed.
“Check and lock all windows and doors. Ensure all locks are secured. Replace those that don’t work,” he said.
ACP Queeley also echoed a call for assistance from the public, to report any suspicious activity they may have seen to the nearest police station or crime stoppers at 1-800(8477) tips .
