Tanner St. business broken into, with thieves netting nearly $50k worth of electronics; UWI-FI suffers break-in, as well


REAL NEWS: Police are investigating a break-in at another Syrian-run store, about one week after a spate of similar offences at Arab-owned businesses.

Reports are that Michael’s Furniture Store, located on Tanner Street, was broken into, and a quantity and variety of flat-screen television sets were stolen, along with electric kettles.

Further reports say the electronic goods, combined, carry a value of almost $50,000.

Apparently, the intruder(s) used a hard implement to pry open a storeroom window and gain entry into the business place.

This offence reportedly occurred between 5:30 p.m. on July 5 and 8:30 a.m. the next morning.

Meanwhile, in an unrelated incident, The University of the West Indies Five Islands campus was broken into and several items were stolen.

Reportedly, the perpetrator was able to access the building by removing four panes of louvre glass from a northern lounge window.

Once inside, the person stole a quantity of non-alcoholic beverages from a small refrigerator and snacks that were on a table.

This offence occurred between 6:10 p.m. on July 5 and 6:30 a.m. the following day. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATS APP GROUP FOR MORE UPDATES

  1. It seems as though one has to have inner and outer burglar bars on every window and door to one’s premises plus security cameras both hidden and visual.
    Does the University campus not have security details or are there enough?
    It is disgusting to read of all these break-ins, shootings, rape, molestation of children taking place in our fair island.

  2. What the heck is going on in Antigua? There have been too many heinous crimes going on lately. It goes from Murders,Break Ins,Rapes,Robbing from Women in their homes and Drive by Shooting. Most of the Cases have been unsolved to this day,by the Police.Police get your heads out of the sands and back into solving Crimes.Do not let those Politicians guide you as to how the FORCE should conduct their Investigations.By the way,when is that CONVICTED RAPIST GOING TO BE SENTENCED?The one who is related to the TAP DAWG.

  3. The theives are everywhere . Cameras, burglar bars , alarms and gaurd dogs don’t even stop them anymore. The legal system sucks and the police are useless. This is only going to lead to one thing. Something I saw in movie name “Death Wish”.

  4. Things Fall Apart under the mismanagement of self-enrichment and Chinese expansionism, and the other corrupter new-nationals of CIP, so of he poor are hungry and angry and will take from those who have. Those who have come here as paupers running from war in their countries are honoured with our grandparents savings, borrowed from the bank, secured by the contracts of politicians who suck onto these they set up. Thieving the people’s money is so open by all of the self-enrichment group, that the people in need have started to steal it back to feed their families.

  5. Thieves actually stealing the inferior products these Syrians sell for top dollar?

    50k sounds a bit exaggerated


    Jumbee_Picknee bones dem say…
    …inside job⁉️
    …insurance fraud⁉️

  7. You will soon know who the thieves are. You will see new faces walking crazy on the road
