Thanks to the electronic alarm system, the proprietors of a Regent Street store were able to catch a thief red-handed even as he tried to hide himself on the premises.
Security personnel from a private firm along with the owner of Young’s Trading at the corner of Regent and Cummings Streets caught the thief, who had upturned a cardboard box over his person to avoid detection in the upper flat of the store.
This was around 04:00 hours yesterday, after the man had already stolen a significant quantity of items amounting to more than $1M.
Amrita Bhimal, a manager at the facility, told Kaieteur News that they had secured the store after doing business on Friday afternoon.
Around 04:00 hours the alarm in the store went off and personnel from the private security firm responded and secured the premises until the owner arrived.
Upon entering they discovered that several items were already removed but they were convinced that the perpetrator was still inside.
They must have passed the thief during the first search for it was not until when they combed the premises again that he was discovered hiding under a huge carton.
He had in his possession cash that was left overnight in the store while there was evidence that he was in the process of removing a computer.
When caught the man claimed that he was working alone but the store owners are adamant that he had at least one accomplice.
“He can’t be working alone because a lot of stuff missing,” Bhimal told Kaieteur News.
She added that among the missing items are clothing, cellular and cordless phones along with a number of speakers.
The man was handed over to the police and is awaiting his day in court.
