Unofficial reports suggest this police investigation may be linked to the armed robbery that occurred earlier today.

Update 5.04pm: As to err on the side of safety, we don’t want to post photos of the actual house, but the police are visible at one particular house, with multiple officers around it. Around a dozen people have gathered to watch, some with cell phones out taking photos.

Update 5.54pm: A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service, based on information received, commenced an operation at a residence on Two Way Deepdale junction with Deepdale East, Pembroke.

“Officers contained several residences while they conducted a search for suspicious males, wanted in connection with an ongoing investigation. Two houses were searched, with negative results.

“The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank area residence for their patience while the scene was processed. The Community Action Team will be in the area in the upcoming days to speak with residents.”

    Well done BPS. I have no doubt that at times you have an extremely difficult job (last week) but it is extremely gratifying to see you jump into swift action and do what needs to be done.

      So…It is gratifying to see them actually put their own lives in harms way…I’m sure they really appreciate your gratitude.

    These culprits are known by someone, report them, else the next person they rob may be a loved one, and in the process of robbing that person may serio usly harm or kill them.

      Or maybe get killed themselves in the process…that’s the headline I’m waiting to read…”burglar killed while trying to burgal”…then the message might get through.
