Investigations continued and a second suspect, Akil Omali Haywood, 21, of Romain Lands, Morvant, was arrested on September 11th, 2020. He was formally charged on Monday 14th September, 2020.

The investigation, which began on September 19th, 2019 was supervised by Insp Grant, and enquiries were conducted by officers of the Four Roads Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

Investigation and video footage extracted by the Western Division Operations Centre (WDOC). This led to the
identification of several suspects and culminated in the arrest of the two men.

Several other men from the Morvant area have also been identified as being part of a ring responsible for similar offences committed in the Western Division.

Around 9:30am on September 19th, 2019, the victim secured his home before leaving. He returned around 5pm and observed that the burglar proofing on the kitchen window had been pried open.

The house had been ransacked and several items including jewellery.
