A 19-year-old male and a 28-year-old male were arrested following a burglary at the P-Tech store this early morning [Oct 9].

A police spokesperson said, “Shortly after 3:45 a.m. on Monday, October 9th, police officers on mobile patrol in the City of Hamilton were alerted to suspicious activity at the P-Tech Electronics retail store.

“Officers attended the location and found the front door damaged. A search was made of the immediate area when officers observed a person dressed in dark clothing heading towards Par-La-Ville Park.

“The subject got on a motorcycle and fled upon seeing police. Several units responded and the subject, a 19-year-old male, was eventually arrested and transported to Hamilton Police Station.

“A search of Par-La-Ville Park resulted in the arrest of a second suspect, a 28-year-old male, as well as the recovery of several electronic items believed to be stolen during the burglary.

“The BPS continues to work in partnership with the business owners of properties that have been recently targeted.”

“Some of the strategies being explored with the business owners are “Target Hardening” and “Early Notification and Response/Alerts”.

“Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Criminal Investigations Unit at 247-1744.”

    Don’t go to court, remove a finger for every crime they commit. Simple…

    So businesses should now resemble prison cells, with hardened bars on windows and doors like the islands to our south?

      That’s the way we’re heading. Bars on windows. Empty shops. Roads not maintained.

      Definitely. If I was an insurance company I wouldn’t insure a shop without proper security shutters. Too much of it going on. The time has come.

        What next then? Armed guards at the doors only allowing 6 or 8 customers at at time to enter?
