Suspected burglar caught by cops, 2nd on the run

| 02/08/2017 | 11 Comments

(CNS): Police arrived within four minutes of a report of a burglary at a condo on Seven Mile Beach in the early hours of Wednesday morning, and managed to nab one of the suspects after witnessing him and his alleged partner in crime climb out of a window. Officers were called to a report of a burglary-in-progress at a condominium complex near Silver Sands on West Bay Road, just after 2:30am.

They spotted two masked men jumping through a side window of an office building on the premises. Both suspects started running towards Seven Mile Beach and police went after them but one managed to get away. The other suspect, a 29-year-old man from George Town, was caught on the beach and arrested on suspicion of burglary.

That man is currently in police custody and officers are now looking for the second suspect, who was described as about 6-feet tall, dressed all in black, with a black mask and gloves.

Anyone with any information about this incident or this individual is asked to call George Town Police Station at 949-4222. Anonymous tips can also be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online here.

    Surely if they check the phone of the guy they caught they will find out his closest friends and contacts…. that could lead to something.

    Awesome work,

    Still, I can’t help but think that they somehow managed to get to this nice Seven Mile road residence within 4 minutes but they have yet to show up to my godmothers house from when she got robbed in ’02.

    The response time of 4 minutes to a robbery in progress is a world record . Real good work RCIP XXXXXX keep up the good work .

      Certainly great response time from the RCIPS here!

      It’s just a pity that the response time in less affluent areas are nothing short of embarrassing… In some districts the response time tends to be more like 30mins+ on average, even when a police station is in the district.

      Granted, there are many factors that influence response time, but ultimately it is not acceptable for an island so small to have response time slower than a crime-ridden US metropolitan city.

      Great work in this particular case RCIPS!

      Unfortunately, this is no-where near the response time for the less affluent areas. Some districts the average response time is more like 30mins+, even when there’s a police station in the district.

    All too often suspects outrun the police, either the criminals need to get fatter, or the police need to get thinner.

    That description will narrow the hunt down…

    Excellent work RCIPS. It’s a pity people didn’t give you credit where it’s due instead of this constant criticism they post. There’s a lot more to Policing than issuing speeding tickets. Keep up the good work.
