Police have made one arrest in connection to the burglary of Pusser’s Restaurant & Bar on Main Street, Tortola recently.
Charged with Burglary and Breach of Curfew is 50-year-old Howard Hughes of no fixed place of abode.
“He remains in police custody pending his appearance in the Magistrate’s Court,” the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) said in a media release late Tuesday afternoon.
The RVIPF had received a report of the burglary Monday morning, April 13. Police said the popular local establishment was burglarized at approximately 11:45 am on April 12.
Law enforcers further had also said the restaurant was discovered burglarized while an employee was carrying out checks of the building on the morning of the report.
This is the second reported burglary to have occurred on Main Street, Tortola during the ongoing curfew period.
Late last month, BVI News reported that Sunshine Grocery Store was burglarized around 10:20 am on Monday, March 30. No known arrests have been made in connection to that break-in.
