REAL NEWS – Police continue to investigate a burglary in which a Tinning Village shop-owner caught a man inside her business.
The woman reported the incident – which occurred at 2:50 in the early-morning hours – to the Grays Farm Police Station.
The victim – the owner of Tam Tac & OJ’s Variety Shop on the corner of George Street and Tinning Village – reported that she had closed and secured her shop and gone to her home, nearby, at about 8:15 p.m. on the night in question.
However, later that night, her daughter got up to use the bathroom and noticed that the light in the shop – which should be off – was turned on.
The woman went to check and observed a slim, brown-skinned male, who was without a shirt, running from her shop in a northern direction.
He had her cash pan, containing about $200 in paper and coins, in his hand.
Reportedly the thief had used a hard implement to knock a padlock from a northern bathroom door; and having done so, he entered and removed the hinges from a kitchen door.
This apparently gave him access to the front room from which the cash pan was taken.
One hat and a pair of slippers, as well as a piece of iron, were found beneath the northern side of the shop.
A search was carried out for the missing monies and the intruder, and a trail of coins, along with $10, was found on the bridge.
