Cash & camera stolen after masked intruders raid home

A probe has been launched after homeowners awoke to find masked intruders in their home this morning.

Just before 5am (June 27), police were called to a report of a burglary-in-progress at a residence on Queens Highway in East End. The occupants had awoken to intruders in the house, going through their belongings. 

Up to three men, masked and dressed all in black, were seen inside the residence with one of them carrying what may have been a handgun. The intruders fled and no one was harmed.

Police responded to the location, confirmed the safety of the people inside the residence, and carried out checks of the area - but no one was apprehended. 

It was determined that a camera and a quantity of cash had been taken.

Police are asking that anyone with any information contact Bodden Town CID at 947-2220, or to submit a tip anonymously directly to police or through Crime Stoppers at 800-8477 or online.
