Thieves have a field day with a series of night-time burglaries, netting cell phone, cash and a luxury car

The Police are probing a spate of burglaries across the island, one of which involves a person on holiday.

Reports are that a United Kingdom man, a guest staying at Halcyon Heights, had his Samsung Galaxy cell phone stolen after someone broke into the house.

The visitor reportedly was awakened by a sound and then saw a figure – who was about 5’7” in height, slimly built, and dressed in dark clothing – in his bedroom.

When the man called out, the person quickly exited the room and ran in an easterly direction.

Upon checks of his bedroom and that of his children, the man observed that several bags had been moved from their original position, searched through, and left on the patio.

The Police have concluded that the unknown intruder used a sharp implement to cut through a screen, then reached through an external burglar bar and unlocked a cylindrical lock for a wooden door.

Reportedly the doors to the bedrooms were closed but not locked.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 4 a.m. on October 16.

Meanwhile, in another offence, a Cashew Hill woman reported to the Police that an unknown male had broken into her house and stolen a quantity of jewelry and $400 in cash.

Reports say that she, too, was asleep in her bedroom when she was awakened by someone touching her.  She then opened her eyes and saw a male figure shining a light in her face while repeatedly telling her not to move.

However, reports are that the woman grabbed the assailant and a scuffle ensued between them, following which he fled from the house through a northern kitchen door.

Apparently, he had used force to open a western kitchen window in order to gain entry into the house.

This offence reportedly occurred at about 3:50 a.m. on October 14.

In the meantime, thieves burglarized the home of a Briggins woman by using an implement to push in the tongue of a cylindrical lock on the front door.

Reports are that, having done so, the intruder opened the door, entered the home, and stole the key for a Lexus IS 250 motor car that was on a dressing table.

The perpetrator then drove away with the woman’s vehicle, which was parked in front of her apartment.

The Police conducted an extensive, but unsuccessful search in the surrounding area for the car.

This offence reportedly occurred between 11 p.m. on October 10 and 3 a.m. on October 11.

And, finally, an Ottos woman had her leather bag containing $250 in cash stolen when her home was burglarized.

Reports are that the intruder entered the home through a push-up kitchen window that was closed but not locked.  The unknown person was able to gain entry by using a bucket to gain height.

A search was carried out by the police in the surrounding area and the stolen bag was found on the eastern side of the yard, but the money was gone.

This offence reportedly occurred between 9:30 p.m. on October 10 and 4:30 a.m. on October 11.
