A couple urged police yesterday to take action against the rampant burglary incidents on Saipan after burglars hit their home on Capital Hill for the second time.
“I've been reading many articles about cases like mine. And this has got to stop!” the wife told Saipan Tribune yesterday.
The wife, who requested anonymity, said they are wondering why it's taking law enforcers a long time to act on this problem.
In the last burglary that happened on Aug. 27, 2012, the couple lost a 46” Sony flat screen TV, a 15.6” Toshiba LCD laptop, a 10” HP netbook, a G.E. digital camera, and a 1022 Ruger rifle. The couple discovered the burglary after returning home from work on Aug. 27.
The wife said the suspects entered their house on the second floor of a two-storey duplex building by cutting the screen on the bathroom window. “I think we're being watched,” she said.
On Jan. 10, 2011, the couple's unit was also burglarized. Items stolen were a 15.6” Compact laptop and a Sony digital camera.
The wife said the police told them to check pawnshops and stores selling used items. They went to some pawnshops and stores selling used items but people there wouldn't entertain them. The victim said the police should be the ones investigating this matter because it's their job.
The Department of Public Safety has yet to release any information about the latest burglary.
