The investigation has thus far revealed that at about 18:45hrs on Sunday, a security guard and handyman of Independence Boulevard, Albouystown, who works at Mr. Granger’s residence, secured the building leaving everything intact and went home.
On Monday, at about 5:45hrs, he returned to the residence and discovered that the door to the northern side of the building was opened and the lock was on the ground.
He immediately began to make checks and discovered that the Samsung 52-inch television was missing.

From all indications, entry and exit were gained through the northern door of the one-storey concrete structure.
