Investigators suspect break-in at Tourism Police Unit was inside job

PLUS News has confirmed that several special constables of the Tourism Police Unit (TPU) were questioned by their own Friday morning in relation to a robbery last week. Between 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 8, and 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, October 9, there was a break-in at the Tourism Police Unit booth at the House of Culture and stole heavy weaponry, ammunition and a computer. Police reported that four 9mm pistols were taken, along with 557 rounds of live 9mm ammunition, thirty-two 9mm magazines and one hundred and fifty twelve gauge cartridges along with a Dell laptop. The weapons were previously held at the police armory but were recently moved to the TPU headquarters and locked in a drawer. Investigators had already suspected an inside job and had narrowed in on two officers for suspected involvement, reports to us say. But we have not been able to confirm the extent of Friday’s quiz and no arrests have been made nor charges laid in the case.
