Six arrested after spate of robberies
Police have made six arrests in the past 24 hours in connection with a spate of street robberies, it was revealed yesterday.
Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley said stolen property, as well as a stolen bike, had also been recovered.
The news came a day after Mr Corbishley held a press conference to highlight a spike in chain snatches and other street crimes. Mr Corbishley said: “These kinds of offences are extremely violent and will not be tolerated.”
Mr Corbishley said he was unable to give details of the suspects because the cases remain under investigation.
He confirmed one arrest was made in connection with a robbery on Tuesday at Frog Lane, when a man’s bracelet was stolen, and another was made in connection with an attack on staff at Four Star Pizza in Sandys in the early hours of the same day.
The commissioner said the operation was “intelligence-led, supported by information” and thanked the public and the media for their assistance.
