St. Maarten – Police have detained one of two people they caught attempting to break into a car on the G. Clement de Weever Road at 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday. The pair, who had acting suspiciously, ran as the patrol approached. A grey Kia Rio and a white Hyundai Accent whose left, back glass was shattered were also confiscated as part of the investigation.

The arrest is one of several robberies and attempted robberies that occurred this week. Another car related theft was the removal of four tires from a rented Nissan Almera, which was parked Welfare Road between 11:00 p.m. on July 17 and 8:30 a.m. on July 18. Witnesses have told police the thieves drove away in a white car.

Police are also seeking two men of dark complexion who robbed a Chinese supermarket on the road leading to the Keys. The thieves, who entered the supermarket late afternoon on July 18, threatened the owner with a knife and took $80 dollars from the cash register. One of the suspects was 1.73 meters tall and wore an orange t-shirt and brown short pants. The second suspect was 1.75 meters tall and wore a black t-shirt.

Police are also investigating a robbery where a slim man pointed a fire arm at a woman through her window while she was watching television and demanded she give him money. She got frightened and fled into the yard where she found a second, thicker man. She dodged him and ran to her sister’s home and called the police.
