(CMR) The RCIPS is now investigating the robbery of a church and a restaurant that occurred a few days apart in George Town.
Reports are that shortly before 9 am, 25 December, police responded to a report of a burglary at a restaurant on Walkers Road, George Town.
Officers were informed that an employee had locked up the establishment at around 8:30 pm the previous night, 24 December. Another employee stopped by the establishment the following morning, 25 December, and it was then that they noticed a break-in had occurred.
After conducting checks of the scene, officers observed a window at the rear of the building had been forced open. Inside, the establishment had been ransacked, and several items were reported stolen, including electronic items and consumable goods.
On December 28, shortly after 2:30 am, police responded to a 911 communication center report of an alarm at a Church on Walkers Road, George Town.
On arriving at the scene, officers saw a window screen at the rear of the building had been removed, and the window pushed in. Further checks revealed a front window screen had been removed, a window on the right-hand side of the building had been broken, and the front door was unlocked.
On entering the building, officers observed that the office door had been pried open, and the office ransacked. It is unclear whether anything was stolen at this time.
