Thieves targeted several businesses and homes during the Christmas holidays, and up to late yesterday police sources told OBSERVER media that no related arrrests have been made.
Play Time Snackette, Ras Menace Ital Shop, Pink Bar, Jamaican Pride Bar and Restaurant, and Island Diagnostics, were among businesses targeted between December 24 and 26.
Play Time Snackette, which is located at YMCA and operated by Joy-Anne and Foster George of Pares Village, was broken into
between 8 p.m. Christmas Eve and 5 p.m. Christmas Day.
The perpetrator(s) escaped with a 32-inch television set worth $1,200 after prying open a window to gain access to the property.
Ras Menace Ital Shop located on lower All Saints Road was breached during the same period as Play Time.
However, the owner locked without further securing a door on the premises, making it easy for the thieves to enter. Once inside, they stole a portable phone charger valued $100, three USB cards valued $20 each, a brown sports backpack worth $150, a clay pot costing $180, along with an Ipod of  undetermined value.
At the Pink Bar on Popeshead Street, on Boxing Day, thieves made off with several cases of cigarettes and a small amount of cash. The robbers broke a section of a concrete wall to enter the property.
A portion of the wire fence surrounding the Jamaican Pride Bar and Restaurant on Temple Street was cut away between Christmas Day and Boxing Day. In this instance the thieves made off with an undisclosed amount of money before making good their escape.
Although it was broken into, nothing was taken from Island Diagnostics on Cross and High Streets, but lawmen are investigating in the hope of catching the intruder who smashed a window to get inside.
Meanwhile, a resident of Buckleys wants the police to find out who stole a barrel of clothing and other items worth $5,000 which she
had stored at Midland Storage.
As it relates to break-ins at homes, these were committed in Villa, Ottos, Lower Gambles, Golden Grove, High Street, Browne’s Avenue, Gambles, Halcyon Heights, Point, Parham
and Freetown, among locations. The majority of the break-ins took place on Christmas Eve.
