The Bermuda Police Service is currently investigating 11 reported school burglaries in the last month, specifically from January 16 to date February 13.
The affected schools are:
• CedarBridge Academy
• Clearwater Middle School
• Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy
• Elliot Primary
• Mount Saint Agnes Academy
• Prospect Primary
• Victor Scott Primary
• West Pembroke Primary
Cash or electronic items were removed in seven instances – while it was unclear what, if anything, was taken in the remaining cases.
In addition, three of the school properties were targeted twice each.
So far, no arrests have been made in connection with these incidents. However, detectives are following all available lines of enquiry and continue to work with the Department of Education to provide relevant crime prevention advice.
With schools out on mid-term break later this week, members of the public can assist by reporting any suspicious activity, individuals or vehicles in the vicinity of any school premises – especially during the hours of darkness – to the main police telephone number 295-0011.
