It was just another day “in paradise” on Thursday (20). We had a mugging on Eden Road, just off South Church Street, and the RCIPS took an inexplicably long time to get there.

The Editor Speaks: Spate of home robberies, time, blindness

We are suddenly experiencing a series of robberies immediately outside or at people’s homes. We have had three in just a few days. The latest was Tuesday (17) in Webster Estates as a woman arrived at her home. The robbers were armed. I knew something serious had happened as I was at a house near […]
