Breaking & Entering

Wed, 2005-05-18

Around 12:15pm on Wednesday, Police attended a reported breaking and entering at a Garthowen Road, Devonshire residence. On arrival officers spoke with the complainant who stated that sometime between 8:30am and 12 noon, someone gained entry into his home, stealing several items of jewelry and approximately U.S. $500 in cash. However the suspect, a 32 year old Sandy’s parish man, was chased from the scene by area residents and subsequently arrested near Jubilee Road in Devonshire. He was taken to Hamilton Police Station where a search revealed cash and several items of jewelry. Inquiries into this incident are underway.


The Bermuda Police Service is aware of an increasing amount of counterfeit Bermuda $50 bills in circulation on the island. The counterfeit currency currently in circulation should be easy to spot, as it is of poor quality and does not have any of the imbedded security features of the genuine currency.

The Bermuda Police Service would also like to inform the public that we are currently conducting a Police motorcycle riding course. As part of the course, officers are testing their skills on the island’s roads, at times traveling at speed. The Police motorcyclists on the course are easily identifiable, and we would ask the motoring public for their co-operation during the officers' training.
