Burglars leave photo evidence behind

Three teenagers were having so much fun burglarising people’s homes that they even took time to photograph their escapades. Stupidly, they left the camera at the home of one of their victims.{{more}}

This blunder saw a four-month long police investigation come to a close on July 24, 2010, after the three youngsters were held in connection with a spate of burglaries in the Calliaqua, Villa, Arnos Vale and Fountain areas.

Akeem Rogers, 17, of Revierre, Tevin Peters, 16, of Arnos Vale, and Alanzo Kidd, 16, also of Arnos Vale, went before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, July 27, 2010, and pleaded guilty to burglarising six dwelling houses in the aforementioned communities between March and July 2010.

Some of items recovered have a value estimated at over $20,000. They include: children’s clothing, fragrances, shoes, DVDs, skin care products, cameras, wedding bands, among others.

Police told SEARCHLIGHT that one of the houses was relieved of over $13,000 worth of items. Some of the stolen items are yet to be recovered.

SEARCHLIGHT was also informed that the youngsters photographed themselves smashing eggs on the walls and ceilings of their victims homes, which eventually led to their arrest.

The boys are currently on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison, pending sentencing on July 30, 2010. (KW)
