An art gallery in Hamilton City Hall is to boost security after a weekend break-in.

Nzingha Ming, the executive director of the Bermuda Society of the Arts, said the gallery, on the third floor of the building, had been “between shows”, and there were no artworks on the walls when it was raided.

She added there was no damage to art, but the intruder had taken cash after they ransacked the gallery’s office.

Ms Ming said staff arrived for work on Monday and found the doors to the gallery had been forced open.

She added the break-in was under investigation by the police.
