Nassau, Bahamas — Police at the Western Division, including Cable Beach and Lyford Cay Stations uncovered what is believed to be a major House Breaking Ring. It is believed that this ring operated in Lyford Cay Community and their activities may have dated back as far as two years.

On Sunday 6th February, 2011, officers from the Lyford Cay Police Station, armed with a Search Warrant, traveled to Nassau Village where they executed a search on a dwelling home.  The search revealed a quantity of lap tops, computers, watches, jewelry, silver ware, television sets, colognes, figurines, hundreds of dollars, personal effects, household items and a variety of other items.  While Police have not yet been able to determine the exact value of these items, officers are satisfied that they are worth thousands of dollars.
