Bodden Town West MLA Chris Saunders says he and MLAs from the Eastern districts plan to meet with police tomorrow (1 December) to address the recent spate of break-ins and attempted break-ins in their area. The MLAs are meeting with police at the LA to discuss crime plans for communities in their areas.
Last night (November 29) we brought you a story of an attempted break-in at a home in Swallow Lakes and the concerns of residents there. Mr. Saunders, the MLA for the area, said he is concerned by what he sees as a growing trend.
“What really scares me the most about these burglaries is the fact that they are being done when people are home and that in itself is a different escalation of crime in Cayman in itself. Before just being home was a deterrence to people wanting to break into your homes, but when people are showing up at people’s homes at 4 o’clock in the morning, this is definitely an issue,” Mr. Saunders said.
Mr. Saunders said he is working with residents to form a neighbourhood watch group. That issue, as well as, police resources in the Eastern districts will be among topics up for discussion when MLAs meet with high-ranking officers.
