Cops arrest accused teen burglars | Dishonest, says Matthews

Police Commissioner Michael Matthews.

Two additional persons of interest have been arrested in connection with the March-April commercial burglaries that had happened in and around Road Town, police have reported.

The two arrested persons include a 16-year-old male from Pockwood Pond and an 18-year-old Horsepath resident who has been identified as Rashawn Williams.

The accused teens are reportedly behind the recent iSmart and Infinite Solutions break-ins.

Police made the announcement following a BVI News report that a 16-year-old Elmore Stoutt High School student had been implicated in one of the aforementioned burglaries.

“The apprehension of those few, selfish individuals whose intent is to make a dishonest living from hardworking businesses trying to get back on their feet from the storms of last year benefits all of us,” said Police Commissioner Michael Matthews while commenting on the latest busts.

He further said he ‘appreciated the long hours’ his team of officers used to apprehend the two suspects.

In the meantime, police have said though individuals have been charged and granted bail, the community needs to remain vigilant.

Police further encouraged businesses to install alarms and camera systems for increased security.

Businesses and individuals are also urged to take photos of valuables such as jewellery. Police said if these items are found during police searches, law enforcers will be able to render the items stolen and the photos could be used as evidence against a suspect.

            It isn’t about which is worse! Neither should be happening. If these men stole – they need to be locked up. This whole mentality of people thinking they can take what is not theirs is WRONG – you want something – WORK FOR IT – don’t steal it.

      @God don’t sleep, You need to go and find something better to do rather than coming on a news site and using God name to cast stones at someone that 9/10 times you do not know personally.

  2. Question says:

    Why did the school that the 16 year old attend have to be mentioned?. Our school already get bashed from time to time and by mentioning it, you’re just bashing it as well. The school that the others attended wasn’t mentioned, was it?

  3. @Bruh says:

    The 16 year old is in school

  4. Idiots says:
