Tuesday, April 1 – Police charged two minors and one adult in relation to three business burglaries, one of the premises was burgled twice.

During a routine police patrol by the Beat and Patrol Unit, officers caught three young males attempting to remove three motor scooters from a business place in Purcell Estate. The perpetrators fled the scene, leaving two of the stolen scooters and several personal items behind. The padlock which secured the business premises was discovered missing.

Over a week later, officers on Beat and Patrol attempted to stop a rider who was acting suspiciously on a scooter. In the pursuit which ensued, the rider lost control, fell and was subsequently apprehended. Upon being searched, a severed padlock was found in his right front pocket. The scooter was later identified as the stolen scooter taken from the premises. The recovered padlock was identified by the Purcell Estate business owner as the replacement padlock.

A visit to the Purcell Estate business revealed that the premises had been illegally entered a second time and two scooters had been taken. The two scooters were later recovered by Police.

The 17-year-old male rider, who resides in Long Look, was immediately taken into custody. A search conducted on his 16-year-old brother, along with the scooter he was rider and subsequently his home, resulted in the recovery of a number of electronic items which were reported missing in a burglary of another business in Purcell Estate.

Both the 16 and 17-year-old was subsequently arrested and charged for burglary. Additionally, Clyde Lloyd, 22, of Horse Path was charged for handling one of the stolen scooters, and using a licence plate on vehicle to which it has not been assigned.
