According to Police information, the searches were carried out on properties in Camps, Conaree, Buckley’s and Frigate. During the searches, Police recovered six laptops, two iPhones, one iPad, one tablet, two play stations, two gold watches and two gold bracelets.
The items were seized and five persons were arrested and taken into police custody on suspicion of burglary. They are assisting Police with the investigations.
Police want persons in the Frigate Bay and Half Moon areas who were victims of these burglaries and might be missing similar items to contact the Frigate Bay Police Station to identify the items seized.
The Police information states, “The Police take this opportunity to remind residents to ensure that all the locking mechanisms of their doors and windows are functional and their homes are properly secured at all times, particularly when leaving (the house) or retiring to bed.”
Police have also encouraged home owners to record the serial numbers of all electronic items or to mark all valuable possessions.
In addition to this, Police have suggested measures, such as the installation of alarms and surveillance systems and the use of security dogs. The idea, Police say, is to “make your homes less attractive to would be burglars.”
