Thieves steal $1.5m worth of electronic devices

The Cross Roads police are reporting that a number of electronic devices were stolen from a business establishment on Half-Way Tree Road, Kingston 5, about 4 yesterday morning.

The items include computer tablets, laptops, phones, keyboards, televisions, perfumes and memory cards. The items are valued at $1.5 million, the police say.

The police are asking members of the public to be on the lookout for persons trying to sell these items.

They are also being urged to resist buying them, for although the culprits usually sell stolen wares at bargain prices in an effort to dispose of them quickly, it is an offence to buy stolen property, and any person found with any of the items will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Anyone who is approached with items matching the descriptions given or who has any information that can assist the police with their investigations is being asked to contact the Cross Road police at 926-6657, police 119 emergency number or the nearest police station.
