Just after midday on Thursday, 12 August, police responded to a report of a burglary that took place sometime after 3am that morning at a bar in the Prospect area of George Town.
Officers were informed that the bar was breached at the rear of the building, where a window was damaged. A further check of the property showed that the bar's office was ransacked, however it is unclear as to whether anything was stolen at this time. After viewing the available security footage, detectives were able to discern that three men, all wearing masks, gloves and coveralls entered the property through the broken window at the back.
"Police are investigating on the premise that the recent spate of commercial burglaries are being carried out by a group of organised individuals targeting businesses and stealing cash and valuables," says Detective Superintendent Peter Lansdown.
Detectives are encouraging anyone with information regarding these men and the various commercial burglaries that have been occurring, to call the George Town Police Station at 949-4222.
