  1. At least, other home owners need not worry.
    Others will be caught given the fact that home owners use much wisdom in protecting their lives and properties.

  2. Good Riddance!

    The Law of Old Rome was that, if one was to catch a thief burglarising one’s property during the night, one had every right to kill that thief.

    Sadly, there are some individuals who do not respect the “property Law” of God and takes it upon themselves the idea that, whatever is yours also belongs to them too!

    Good Riddance to this unreformed criminal! One less thief who had made the lives of others in SVG a thorough misery! Good Riddance to him!
