July 1, 2016

Two males have been arrested and what is believed to be a firearm has been seized following a home invasion in St George’s this afternoon [July 1] in which the police said the homeowner “challenged” the suspects, hence they could not get on their “awaiting motorcycle.”

Police Media Manager Dwayne Caines said, “At approximately 3:55pm police attended a report of an incident in St. George’s.

“It appears that two males gained entry into a dwelling on that said road, they made demands of money, now it appears that they also brandished a firearm.

“They were given an undisclosed amount of cash, and they left the dwelling and tried to get on awaiting motorcycle.

“They were challenged by the home owner and they could not get on that cycle, and they ran down the street and they were trying to get in an awaiting vehicle.”

“That vehicle was followed and subsequently two individuals arrested, and what is believed to be a firearm is now in police custody.”

    good stop the nonsense

    • Cris m says:

      I know me for one applaud the home owner and it is about time we Bermudians make a united stand as one and start taking back our country and wipe this type of garbage off our streets, even if it means taking them out and use them as shark bait..

  2. Wow says:

    All those sirens just for this? Thought a plane was on fire and they were heading to the airport. Anyway I hope you all start preparing yourselves and arming yourselves because home invasions and robberies are going to keep rising and rising until the OBA makes good on those 2,000 jobs.

    • The Boomvang says:

      WOW go get stuffed, nothing to do with jobs by any party, just stupid little wanna be pricks that need a serious real life disappearance from the planet

      • Wow says:

        You must be living in a land of privilege with no worries about where your next meal is coming from. SORRY but it’s just truth supported by evidence, desperate times call for desperate measures.

        • Extraordinary says:

          In a sense you are correct. No jobs and lack of a quality education leads people to do desperate things. With all the other people getting away with robberies more and more people will be brave enough to give it a go also.
          Yes we as a country need to stop and think why would someone need to steal from someone else? Why dont they have their own things and feel the need to take form others?

          Why doesn’t our Ministry of Education STAND up and fight for not only clean schools but maybe also a quality CONTINUING education from BERMUDA COLLEGE??? 4 YEAR DEGREE maybe would help with qualifications and proper job training and skills training for the next generation is a good place to start!

          Countries with good/stable educational systems have less crime! Not NO crime but LESS crime!

          The lack of hope in this country is staggering. And the youth are feeling it from their parents and the parents are feeling it from the country!

          Lets give the Bermuda people a sense of pride to learn trades and progress in careers and this will lead to better mindsets and maybe we can get Bermudians back to a state of love :-)

        • Zevon says:

          No he’s right. The stupid wanna be little pricks can get stuffed.
          Screw you, making excuses for armed robbery. Idiot.

        • NoExcuses says:

          Hard times is still no excuse for those type of life choices. Choosing to purchase a firearm that’ll be used to rob other people is more of a statement of character than the country’s job situation. A lot of dudes pulling these robberies aren’t exactly spending the money on bills.

    • Kai says:

      • Extraordinary says:

        Thank you!

      • filobedo21 says:

        If there is real need for food or loodging, there are agencies in Bermuda that will help is one seeks them out. And most of all for the unemployed there is Social Assistance. These armed thieves are criminals.

    • Legalgal says:

      Wow. You are delivering a threat. You are as good as the criminals involved. No excuses. Was interested to discover your identity.

  3. wahoo says:

    F@#! De Ganstas!

  4. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    Home owner challenged them huh?…yah mon…time is coming…The predators becoming the prey…12″concrete block anklets for sale buy one get one free!

  5. Brainiac says:

    Idiots! Cudos to the homeowner for his quick thinking!He should have kicked them in the azz really hard and let them go only to be caught later and identified by the pair of size 15′s still stuck up in their azzes!

  6. Watchman says:

    Romans 13:1-14

    Stop the p#$$yfooting around. I see patterns and repetive cycles. Do what needs to be done and make examples. People are incarcerated..,. The get rest and work out…….they come out…..bigger…..stronger…..faster…..and hell bent on making a name for themselves on the streets. Stop playing politics…..stop looking the other way and DO something real.

  7. Point boy says:

    Well done once again BPS! Very fast response for St. George.

  8. Point boy says:

    Brave homeowner. If the gun was real and the a$$hole desperate enough it could of been ugly.

    We need all these kind of punk criminals Behind bars.

    • Nana says:

      Well done Bermuda Police Service! Lock the punks up and throw away the key. Get the scum bags off the street.

  9. Reality Check says:

    Really well done by BPS catching these guys so quickly !

  10. Will says:

    Am i the only one wondering what the homeowner had that scared off two guys with a gun?

    • Nana says:

      Maybe he had a rifle.they do not like a challenge.They use to people being scared of them. The shoe was on the other foot this time. Well done homeowner. You showed them who was the Boss.

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      BALLS!!…

  11. swing voter says:

    so a home owner put his life on the line slowed these fools down enough for BPS to catch them red handed. now its time for the judges and jury to give these fools max time, consecutive sentences.

    • Islander says:

      Yes and Eddie Lamb you may need to ask for more accommodations to be built because people are tired of going to funerals, children are missing their father’s, families and communities miss their loved ones and these thugs being locked up for life may bring some closure. We call on government to change laws to life for all violent deaths and serious assault with no parole, robberies should get much more than a slap on the wrist with no parole and neither of the above get visits. Cut them off completely.

  12. Onionjuice says:

    The problem is they are not put behind bars.. I said ship them off to a prison in Russia, Same names in the daily for years that are doing crime…TOUGHER PUNISHMENT IS NEEDED.

  13. Mr east says:

    Must be dummies.

  14. They set out to take a life, premeditated! They’re aprehended n locked up. And at the end of the day who feeds n educates these criminals…the suffering families! Maybe these criminals would think twice when fingers start getting chopped off. Whatever part(s) of someones body is used to commit a crime….chop it off!! That might make em think twice before the plan their crimes!

  15. Hmmm says:

    Put them away for life. Real life not that it 25 year rubbish

  16. Justice says:

    These guys are criminals no two ways about it. Nothing to do with who is running the government. If they needed help go get financial assistance etc like decent citizens. Stop defending these thugs!!!!! Any victims affected by a home invasion wouldn’t defend the criminals in other words it doesn’t affect u that’s why u can say what u do

  17. Bermy123 says:

    All i know is that this world we live in – this system – was founded on armed robberies and more by you know who. I think its time to redistribute the wealth that was stolen and amassed. The n the crimes will go down. Until then, put up or shutup all you people with your less then brilliant comments. Instead of using our young people as sharkbait, try to change the situation. Thats the problem! The old people just do not seem to understand things and why they happen. Instead they just spout a barrage of nonsensical idiocracy. Make a difference instead of judging circumstances from way up on high on your old thrones. All we need is love! Young123
