A 16-year-old has been implicated in the April 2018 burglary of iSmart in Road Town.
Following investigations, police reportedly charged the Elmore Stoutt High School student with burglary.
Information to our news centre is that police suspect the teen was among the three masked males who were seen on CCTV footage burglarizing the electronic store on the day in question.
It is said the assailants used a bolt cutter to cut the locks, break the glass door, and enter the building.
The assailants, who used T-shirts to mask their identities, reportedly made off with a number of electronic items and an unspecified amount of cash.
It is not clear when the youngster in question will appear in court to answer to the burglary charge.
The teen’s name will not be published since he is a minor.
In a police media release issued immediately after the April burglary, police had said the assailants were reselling the stolen items for cheap.
There have been a series of break-ins across the territory in recent times and the accused teen is one of several arrests law enforcers have made in connection with these reported crimes.
