The Hanover police are yet to make an arrest arising out of an incident in which an alleged car thief was beaten to death by an angry mob in the parish on Saturday.

Sharon Beeput, the commanding officer for the Hanover police division, said it would be very difficult for the police to arrest persons involved so quickly as persons are unwilling to identify the individuals who carried out the act.

"We still trying to find persons," Beeput told WESTERN STAR. "Mob killings are hard to solve because the persons are not giving away each other, but we are still on it," she said.

According to reports, at about 7:20 a.m. on Saturday, irate members of the Flower Hill community in Hanover stoned a man who they accused of stealing a motorcar in their community. The police were called, and on their arrival the body of the unidentified man was discovered.
