A number of residents have admitted they feel “shaken” and “violated” after police were called to investigate several reports of home invasions that took place in different communities over the past few days.

One businessman, who spoke to OBSERVER media, said his wife is still distressed after she discovered their home, located on the northern portion of the island, had been broken into and valuables stolen.

“It happened on Friday afternoon. My wife came home from work roughly about 1:30 and she discovered that the house had been broken into,” the man said. “We called the police immediately and they responded pretty quickly.”

The proprietor, who wished not to be named, said he believes the officer’s quick response was due to fact that two other homes in that vicinity had been broken into that day.

The homeowner said the intruder(s) made (their) way into the master bedroom where the family kept their safes.
