Thieves target Digicel twice in three days
A break-in at telecoms firm Digicel forced the store to stay shut yesterday until the afternoon.
It was the second incident at the red landmark building on Church Street in Hamilton in three days.
Thieves broke into the shop and stole an unknown quantity of goods, and it had to be shut while repairs were carried out.
Police are investigating the break-in in the early hours, which came after an attempted break-in on Sunday.
The company said: “Digicel can confirm that our store on Church Street suffered a break in and some inventory was stolen.
“We have reported the matter to the police and they are investigating.
“Our number one priority is to ensure that our customers are well taken care of and so we ask that they visit our BTC store or the Digicel office for any assistance.”
A tweet from Digicel Bermuda advised customers that the shop would be closed until noon.
But a spokeswoman explained the repair work meant the store did not open until 2pm.
No further details were provided on what was stolen. It is not known if the two incidents were related.
A police spokesman said: “Police can confirm that an attempted burglary occurred at the Digicel store on Church Street in the City of Hamilton at about 5.30am on Sunday.
“It appeared that no entry was gained and nothing was removed from the premises, although a door had been damaged.
“Then around 5am on Tuesday, a burglary occurred at the same location where the suspects gained entry and removed an unknown quantity of merchandise.”
The spokesman appealed for witnesses.
