21-yr-old arrested for burglary

BVI News understands that police last week arrested a 21-year-old young man from Brandywine Bay after suspecting that he and one of his peers attempted to burglarize a home more than once.

It’s understood that while the owner of the house was monitoring his CCTV camera, he saw two armed men — wearing hoodies — hovering near his home as if they were searching for something. However, they left the property without causing any trouble.

It’s alleged that the next day, the homeowner’s CCTV camera picked up two armed men trying to enter the property. They reportedly used objects to break windows in an attempt to enter the house. They reportedly left the scene shortly after without causing harm.

It’s understood that the family has been seriously disturbed by the attempted break-ins as they have experienced similar attempts in recent months.

Our sources say the police were contacted and carried out some investigations, which included reviews of CCTV footage the family captured.

They were able to nab the 21-year-old but it’s unclear whether his peer was accosted. Burglaries and robberies have been on the rise in the community and many speculate that the acts are being committed by the same perpetrators.

Last Friday June 7, the police confirmed an armed robbery took place at the Bath and Turtle Restaurant on Virgin Gorda.

Some weeks ago, armed men also tried to rob the Leverick Bay Marina, on Virgin Gorda. They reportedly assaulted the manager after their efforts proved futile.

    These sound like really low grade, unsophisticated criminals. It is very concerning that from the article it sounds as though they have access to firearms.

  3. THINK! says:

    What do you mean by”They left without causing harm.” They frightened people and broke windows that had to be repaired and paid for out of pocket. Trespassing alone was causing harm.

    These little thieves need to find a job. The same energy they had to arm themselves, attempt to disguise themselves, and enter these folks homes twice, is the same energy they could have used to find a job.

    Who will hire them now with this record? They have altered the course of their futures with their thieving ways. They just made their lives harder based on the choice they made.

    All choices for good or bad has consequences. Now, his life has to take a serious detour as deals with the consequences or his sticky fingers.

    Put his behind in jail for a decent time, and I hope his fella criminals are found and locked up too.

    Tired of these gun toting thieves. Don’t want to abide by the laws of the land? There is a place for you. It’s called Ballo.

    Thank God the homeowners were not injured. It’s a good thing they had the presence of mind to have installed those CCT cameras about their home.

    It’s unfortunate the laws does not currently allow homeowners the right to arm themselves to protect themselves and property. If these criminals knew a gun was potentially waiting for them on the other side, they might just stop their bs.
