Burglary Reported On St Mary’s

There’s been another walk-in burglary on St Mary’s, the second this year.

Police have just released details of the theft of a purse which occurred last weekend, because the woman who reporting it wanted to thoroughly search her home just in case it had been misplaced inside.

It appears that somebody walked into the property, just outside Hugh Town and removed the purse which contained some cash and credit cards.

Police say they have no further leads to follow. In February, £5,000 in cash was stolen from a home in Old Town. In both of these cases the properties were not locked.
