Senator Bruce appealed to the perpetrators of these acts to “stop it.”

“Stop it now!” Bruce said on Tuesday, indicating that these acts of violence against property owners is not fair, not right, and not legal.

The opposition caretaker mentioned the names Lauders, Lowmans, Greiggs, Chapman’s and North and South Union, as some of the villages that have been plagued with this problem.

Speaking about the element of fear that is now present in the constituency, Bruce who is a lawyer, encouraged persons who know about these crimes not to remain silent.

“Let us bring under control what is happening in the constituency,” he appealed on Tuesday.

According to the caretaker, some shops have been broken into twice, and contents stolen.

He also called on the police for their assistance in reducing acts of burglary in South Central Windward.
