Guyana Times reporter’s home burglarised

first_imgThe DeKendren, West Coast Demerara home of Guyana Times reporter Kizzy Coleman was, in the wee hours of Thursday, burglarised, the thief/thieves making off with a quantity of jewellery and electronic items.The 24-year-old reporter thinks that her home was invaded at sometime between 02:00h and 03:00h, while she, her mother and sister were asleep.Coleman told this publication that she had gone to the washroom at about 01:30h, then proceeded to the kitchen before putting her phone to charge.She recounted that at about 03:00h, her mother came into her room to enquire whether she had removed her mother’s mobile phone.“I said, ‘I just plugged it out, it’s right on the table, and I put in mine,’ but she said she didn’t see any phone at all on the table, so I got up to go look for myself,” Coleman recalled.At that point, the duo went into the living room to search for the phones, and they then observed that the wires attached to the desktop computer had been pulled out, and the monitor was lying on its face on a desk.Coleman said they further observed that the HP laptop computer belonging to her sister, which was left on a table in the living room, was also missing.Coleman told this publication that after they had thoroughly searched the house, they discovered that a quantity of gold jewellery had also been stolen.Moreover, they discovered that panes from one of the louvre windows had been removed, and some were lying broken on the floor.“After we realised that someone was in the house, we started to further inspect, (then) we noticed that louvres from one of the windows were taken out and some (were) broken. The person who came in through that small spot had to be extremely thin,” Coleman ascertained.The Police were contacted, and they subsequently visited the home. Police “D” Division Commander Rishi Das has confirmed that an investigation has been launched.last_img read more
