Police are currently investigating three burglaries that reportedly involved the theft of a motor jeep, electronics, and other items.

One victim in Potters New Extension reported to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) that her home had been burglarized and her blue Kia Sportage jeep, registration A7049, was stolen between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. on May 10.

Fortunately, the jeep was later found abandoned in Potters and has been processed by the police for evidence.

According to reports, the victim discovered the theft after her husband informed her that the jeep was not in the driveway where she had parked it the night before.

The intruder had gained entry to the house through the wooden door of a northern laundry room.

Further investigations revealed that the burglar searched a southeastern bedroom and the living room, stealing two vehicle keys from the latter.

The perpetrator then searched a brown Hyundai Tucson jeep but did not take anything before driving away in the Kia Sportage.

The stolen vehicle reportedly contained a black-and-red laptop bag with a Lenovo laptop and a black handbag with a multi-colored pouch containing various important documents, including four Antigua and Barbuda passports, two US passports, birth certificates, and identification cards belonging to members of the family.

Meantime, On May 8th, a Lightfoot resident reported to the All Saints Police Station that her home was burglarized between 8:10 p.m. and 10 p.m.

The burglar used a hard object to break open a southern kitchen window, reached in, and unlocked it. After gaining entry, the intruder headed to a northwestern bedroom, ransacked it, and made off with a black Lenovo laptop worth $1,200.

The perpetrator then fled through a western living room window. Despite police efforts, the stolen computer was not recovered.

In another incident on May 10th, a Cassada Gardens man reported that an unknown person had broken into his house and stolen the keys to his silver Rav4 vehicle.

The intruder gained entry by removing two panes of glass from a louvre window.

The perpetrator then made their way to an eastern bedroom and took the keys to the jeep from a table.

Although nothing was reported stolen from the vehicle, the burglar ransacked it. The homeowner was forced to replace the louvres for security purposes.
