Thieves break into St. Maarten’s Police Chief home

POSTED: 10/18/11 12:35 PM

St. Maarten – Chief Commissioner of Police Peter de Witte’s home in Oyster Pond was broken into sometime during the day Monday. He discovered the break-in when he returned home at 6:00 p.m. after leaving the house for work at around 7:00 a.m. No one was home when the robbery took place.
De Witte was unable to say what was stolen in the robbery as detectives were sorting through the house for clues. He did confirm though that suspect(s) had broken into the safe where he stored his service revolver. The police chief called the break in a terrible experience and said he’s now going through the same difficulty that other people experience when such an event happens.
“They made a mess and I can’t really tell what was taken because the detectives are still searching, but yes they did break into the safe,” de Witte said.
