Through ground enquiries and with the aid of images from Police cameras, officers from Central Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him on 12 May 2022. Of the reported amount of cash stolen, $360 was recovered from the man.

The man will be charged in court on 13 May 2022 with housebreaking and theft under Section 451 of the Penal Code 1871. The offence carries an imprisonment term up to 10 years and a fine.

  • Install a burglar alarm, motion sensor light and/or CCTVs, to cover the access points into your premises. Ensure that they are tested periodically and in good working condition; and
