Teens reportedly burgle home, lock themselves inside

Road Town Police Station

Two teenagers who reportedly barricaded themselves inside a room in a house they broke into have been arrested on suspicion of burglary.

The incident reportedly happened this week in the Rogues Bay area of Tortola.

BVI News understands that the real estate agent in charge of the property visited the location after learning that the house had been broken into.

While doing a subsequent assessment of the property, the agent discovered that he was being barred from entering one of the rooms because the assailants had locked themselves inside.

The police were subsequently summoned.

BVI News understands that the teenaged assailants were found hiding on another section of the property by the time law enforcers arrived.

The teens reportedly had a bag of valuables believed to have been taken from the property.

One of the teens is said to be a female minor.

    More of the fine offspring of the local population. Slap on the wrist and send them off to some fake college in the US to get a piece of worthless paper. Then return and become a politician. And the cycle starts over again.

      You’re too much with this comment, this is not indicative of the BVI people and community.

      Just bad judgment on their part and not thinking. College is better than prison! Give the youths more opportunities and they will be just fine!

      Hear me mr British man? Presumably.

          Yes, auto correct and YOUR POINT IS….. obviously you “came” when you corrected “your” to “you’re” which is the contraction for you are? I’m glad that you are not too illiterate and knows the difference. There is hope for you after all. Always on the blogs with y’all negativity and devisive behavior. Please go ahead and break down “y’all” now.

        will soon be an exodus of readers, except for 15-20 co-horts and suppoters of “Anonymous,” and hopefully sponsers from BVI News if that news source does not curtail or block the insults, hate and slander that that individual post daily against the local populace.

        It is bone chilling to read such vile hatred being espoused by one demented individual, being supported by so many, against the majority of our country.

        That individual must be dealth with yesterday.

        Further, the whole narrative seems to be inciting and instigating racial violence against our people.

        It is hoped that BVI News is closely monitoring these developments and will not tolerate such narratives of hate to have a spot in media.

        Here, on BVI News or the Virgin Islands, should not be accomodating to hate speech, or white people freely expressing their hatred for Black people. It must stop yesterday, BVI News!!!!!

      There are two separate issues going on here. One is the crime committed, which most are not condoning and two, the other which is a very ignorant, prejudice and discriminatory remark by some sleezebag who chose to remain “anonymous”. This adult is the one who is setting a very poor example to the youths and is not fit to live among us!!!

    Shhhh. The UK has no youth crimes at all. Not a single crime is committed by youths.

    “England and Wales have particularly high rates of youth custody, second in absolute number only to
    Turkey in Europe. After a period of higher levels around the turn of the century, the overall juvenile
    prison population in 2011 was close to the level of the early 1990s. There has been a shift from detainees on remand to sentenced prisoners.
    2 Key Facts
    Total number of proven offences committed by youth in 2010/11: 176,5117
    Total cost to the country of police and justice for young offenders in 2007-8: approximately £4 billion.”

    Oh dear mate, seems like you have to take the mote out of your own eye first.
