POSTED: 11/15/11 4:39 AM

St. Maarten – The police are investigating the “numerous” break-ins that spanned the St. Maarten’s Day weekend. The break-ins range from car break-ins to home break-ins and break-ins at different businesses on the island. Most of the incidents took place during the hours that the St. Martin’s Day festivities were taking place.
The weekend’s complaints also include armed robberies at different establishments in Cole Bay. Employees at both businesses were attacked and threatened by robbers who carried handguns and/or machetes. The thieves then took away their cash, cellular phones and personal identification, before fleeing the scene.
Police also reported that G.J.F. was robbed of his gold chain with gold medallion between 10.15 p.m. and 11.00 p.m. on November 11 after he and his family had left the Festival Village. The man was walking through the parking-lot of the Philipsburg Community and Cultural Center when four men he did not know approached him, his wife and child. One of the men grabbed the chain and then all four fled.
