Hope house burgled while family flying kites
A family at Low Lands, Hope, East Coast Dem-erara was devastated after returning home after a kite flying exercise on Monday evening to find it ransacked and over $700,000 in cash and jewellery stolen.
Govind Singh, deputy Regional Executive Offi-cer of Region Five told Stabroek News that the jewellery belonged to his wife and two of their two daughters, ages 3 and 9-years-old. The children are still deeply traumatized.
He said they left home around 2 pm and when he returned at 7 pm he knew something was amiss. He noticed the gate broken and the front door open. The bandits had broken the padlock on his grill door to gain entry into the house.
