(CMR) Police are now investigating a burglary that occurred at a Prospect bar early Thursday morning, 12 August.
According to the RCIPS, just after midday, police responded to a report of a burglary that took place sometime after 3 am that morning at the 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 organized 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. Anonymous tips can be provided directly to the RCIPS via their Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or via their website
