A resident of Lower Telescope who lived part of his life in England, was not spared the ravages of bandits who intruded on his property and escaped with an undisclosed sum of money and a number of other items including a laptop computer.
The entire compound upon which the building sits is protected by wire fencing and dogs but this was insufficient to keep the bandits from gaining entry into the building and escaping with the loot.
According to a source, one of the suspected culprits is a young man, who is associated with a young lady in the area and can at times be seen loitering on the block in the village.
The police were notified of the robbery and are in full investigation, but at the time of publication, no one had yet come forward with any information leading to any detention in connection with the robbery.
The owner of the property was not at home at the time of the robbery and still has not come to grips with the reality of the incident, while he continues to count his losses.
The area in Telescope where the incident occurred had suffered its last break in over a year ago. One of the accused is currently serving a jail term, while the other whose name is being linked by word on the ground to this most recent robbery was never brought to justice as it is suspected he had left the country.
Word is, now that the individual is back and frequents the village again, his name was the first to be associated with the latest robbery and villagers are claiming that if the police investigate the matter more thoroughly it would lead them to the real culprit.
