Three men have been jointly charged with building breaking and larceny in connection with the weekend theft of alcohol from a storeroom at a Friars Hill Road.

A statement from STRATCOM identified the accused at Jose Puello Mercedes of Villa, Winston Diaz of St Georges Street and Wandy Jose Campos of Upper Fort Road.

It is alleged that on Saturday, February 25, they broke into Xtra-Space Storeroom at Friars Hill Road and stole 41 cases of Presidente beer, 15 cases of Corona beer and three bottles of Johnny Walker Black Label Whiskey.

The items are said to be worth over $5,000.

Members of the Police’s Rapid Response Unit responded to a report of the break-in on Saturday, and met a Blue Hyundai Motor Truck C6301, being driven by Diaz leaving the scene.

The vehicle was intercepted and the items were found in the vehicle along with the trio. The vehicle with the items was seized and the men detained. They are expected to appear in court this week.
