Computers, TV, fan stolen from Granger’s D’Urban backlands house
Police are investigating the burglary of Chetwynd Learning Centre at Thorne Drive, D’Urban Backlands – the former residence of ex-President David Granger – which occurred between Sunday and Monday.
Three days after the incident took place, Police Headquarters in a statement on Wednesday, noted that four Huawei laptops valued at $320,000; one Lasko fan valued at $7,000, a 52-inch Samsung television valued at $240,000, an HP printer valued at $120,000 and a barber set in a bag valued at $50,000, were stolen.
The incident occurred between 18:45 hrs on Sunday and 05:45 hrs on Monday.
According to the police report, a security guard and handyman attached to the centre secured the building and went home at about 18:45 hrs on Sunday.
When the security guard returned the next day, he discovered that the door to the northern side of the building was opened and the lock was on the ground.
Police said the security guard immediately began to make checks and discovered that the television was missing. He then contacted Granger who visited the scene and discovered the other items were missing.
“From all indications, entry and exit were gained through the northern door of the one-storey concrete structure,” Police reported. Investigations are ongoing.
