The police yesterday reported that a 55-year-old man and his 11-year-old son have been charged with shop-breaking and larceny.
According to a news release from the constabulary’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), about 2:40 am Monday, police on mobile patrol saw the man in a pullover sweater and stopped to investigate, as it was past curfew hours.
The CCU said, upon making checks, the police discovered that the man and his son had forced open and ransacked a bar.
The man, who lives in Corn Piece in Hayes, Clarendon, and his son took the police to where they had stored the items they had stolen from the bar.
“These were a variety of liquor and assorted drinks, a Blackpoint television and a monitor box,” the CCU said, adding that the items, valued at $115,450, were identified by the complainant.
