ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI– Three men were charged last week for burglarising commercial premises.

Michael Ashby of Road Town and Reynaldo Hewlett, 36, of Huntums Ghut were charged separately for illegally entering businesses; one a restaurant in the Baughers Bay and the other a commercial business in the Road Town area. Hewlett was also charged with an additional count of burglary after he was found to have entered the same premises twice and escaping lawful custody.

Shamoi Dagou, 24, of Belle Vue was similarly charged last week with illegal entry in a commercial burglary which took place in 2017.

Officers of the Criminal Investigation Department have been actively investigating a number of commercial burglaries in Road Town and Wickham’s Cay II area. Burglars are also targeting a number of construction offices and worksites where valuable tools and cash are stored.

Police are warning businesses to ensure that premises and construction sites are properly secured aided with use of the alarms and CCTV cameras.

Anyone with information into additional perpetrators is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Department through the access number 311. Persons can also call the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 368-9339. All information will be held in the strictest confidence.
