Thieves hit Lusig­nan Golf Club again

Stabroek News - - STABROEK NEWS -

Weeks af­ter the Lusig­nan Golf Club was robbed of over a $1 mil­lion worth of valu­ables, they have suf­fered yet an­other bur­glary.

Stabroek News was told that on Wed­nes­day morn­ing the locks to the club’s house and bond were bro­ken and the doors were found ajar. The glass door to the club house was also shat­tered.

Club Sec­re­tary Rabindra­nauth Per­saud told this news­pa­per yes­ter­day that the rob­bery oc­curred some­time be­tween 6.30 and 7 am, just af­ter the se­cu­rity guard would have left.

Per­saud dis­closed that af­ter be­ing alerted to the rob­bery, he con­ducted an in­spec­tion of the club and ob­served cook­ing-gas bot­tles and other small items miss­ing. He stated that the value of the items was far less than that of the pre­vi­ous rob­bery in Novem­ber.

With the rob­beries now oc­cur­ring fre­quently, the ex­ec­u­tive body and club mem­bers are start­ing to be­lieve the per­pe­tra­tors are per­sons with close con­nec­tions to the club.

So far no ar­rest has been made for the Novem­ber 16th rob­bery.

“It is very frus­trat­ing at this point, we are try­ing to re­sus­ci­tate our losses but this crim­i­nal act keeps re­peat­ing,” Per­saud lamented.

The stolen items from the last bur­glary in­cluded, two grass cut­ting ma­chines, a trac­tor bat­tery, a flat screen tele­vi­sion, a cook­ing-gas bot­tle, a charger for a golf cart and liquor.

In the last rob­bery, there were no signs of forced en­try to the club­house but the lock to a bond door was bro­ken. This led Per­saud to opine that some­one got hold of the keys to the club­house, en­tered and re­moved the valu­ables.

The break-in comes at a time when the club’s ex­ec­u­tive is put­ting sys­tems in
