Around 4:30PM yesterday, 14 December, police responded to a report of a burglary in the vicinity of Farm Road in East End. The complainant had left his home fully secured at 6AM yesterday morning, and discovered the home burgled when he returned yesterday afternoon. His licensed firearm, a 12 gauge Maverick shotgun, was stolen from its gun case, along with several rounds of ammunition. The lock on the gun case had been broken. Although still uncertain, it appears that this was the only item stolen from the household.

We are reminding gun owners to secure their firearms and place their gun cases in as inconspicuous a place as possible in their homes. If the guns are no longer being used, they can be surrendered to police for destruction.

We are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Bodden Town CID at 947-2220 or to call the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477.
