Jul 05, 2008 News Comments Off on Burglar targets Agriculture Ministry
Within the space of just over one month there have been two break-ins at the Head Office of the Ministry of Agriculture, situated at Regent and Vlissengen Roads, Georgetown.
Video footage of the incident shows that after the robber realized that there is a security camera, he took off his jersey and covered his face with it in front of the camera and then proceeded with his task of burglarizing the place.
The first incident occurred on May 31 last, when the Minister’s Secretariat and the Personnel Department were broken into and three 17-inch flat panel monitors were removed. This incident was reported to the Police, who are conducting their investigations.
Since that first incident, an electronic surveillance system has been installed in the building.
The second incident occurred yesterday at approximately 01:20 hours.
The offices of the Permanent Secretary, Chief Executive Officer of the NDIA,Corporate Secretary of the NDIA and the Storekeeper of the NDIA were broken into. Attempts were also made to break into the offices of the Minister of Agriculture and the Deputy Permanent Secretary (Administration).
Two 17-inch flat panel monitors and a computer CPU were removed from the Permanent Secretary’s office, and drawers were ransacked. Losses at the offices of the NDIA have not yet been determined, but drawers were ransacked.
The Police have been called in to investigate.
Images of the perpetrator have been captured by the ministry’s surveillance system. Copies of the tapes will be handed over to the Police to assist them in their investigations, and distributed to the media to seek the cooperation of the public in identifying the perpetrator.
