Perpetrator drove away with the woman’s vehicle after breaking into her home


Thieves burglarized the home of a Briggins woman by using an implement to push in the tongue of a cylindrical lock on the front door.

Reports are that, having done so, the intruder opened the door, entered the home, and stole the key for a Lexus IS 250 motor car that was on a dressing table.

The perpetrator then drove away with the woman’s vehicle, which was parked in front of her apartment.

The Police conducted an extensive, but unsuccessful search in the surrounding area for the car.

This offence reportedly occurred between 11 p.m. on October 10 and 3 a.m. on October 11.

Meantime, an Ottos woman had her leather bag containing $250 in cash stolen when her home was burglarized.

Reports are that the intruder entered the home through a push-up kitchen window that was closed but not locked.  The unknown person was able to gain entry by using a bucket to gain height.

A search was carried out by the police in the surrounding area and the stolen bag was found on the eastern side of the yard, but the money was gone.

This offence reportedly occurred between 9:30 p.m. on October 10 and 4:30 a.m. on October 11.

  1. What causes crime? Unemployment, poverty, and illegals in the country who cannot work. Instead of Gaston getting on his radio station every Saturday and talk about Harold Lovell, why doesn’t he find the solution to the crime problem by finding work for the unemployed young men sitting on the street Corners smoking marijuana and rounding up and deporting all the foreign criminals. How long are Antiguans going to be afraid to sleep at night and businesses have to have break ins and theft? I say again, Find work for the unemployed young men and deport all the illegals.

    • I am not politically motivated, but as soon as something happens in this country y’all quick to blame government… Plenty a dem nah want none work cause dem say sun too hot… They will break the right persons house and they will get what they are looking for… Dem too lazy… Tired a de government crap… How many foreigners come here and get work?

      • @Shocked
        What we have government for? To eat down the country and get rich and fat? They need to train the young people and bring in investors to create work for them. They need to stop letting all kinds of people in the country so that the employers will have to hire them rather than exploiting the foreigners with low wages and poor working conditions.

    • In Antigua criminals are NOT created from unemployment. IT’S AN EXCUSE THAT MANY PERSONS USE especially members from UPP. Many youngsters can find work to do. They can wash cars, go fishing, cut yards etc etc but the choice is to laze out on the block, smoke and get quick money by begging or stealing and then place themselves into style & fashion. It’s an epidemic with many youngsters now, who just want to live a life of ” living light & smelling sweet “

  2. All criminals and teef, if you all want good things and too lazy to go work for them go rob Gaston Browne, Cutie Benjamin, Robbing the Hood and the rest of them teefin politicians. Lef de rest ah we alone.
