BURGLARIES CONTINUE ON EAST END

Police say they hope to step up patrols on the East End of St. Thomas to prevent the burglaries that have recently terrorized the area.
According to Friday's Daily News, burglars returned to Cabrita Point on Thursday and broke into the home of Jean Charlton, trashed it and stole items ranging from wrapped Christmas presents to a new bike that belonged to a 13-year-old friend.
Late Monday night two men attempted to break into the home of Charlton's neighbor, Edie Murphy. They broke Murphy's sliding glass door and slashed Charlton's screen but were scared off when other neighbors came to the scene.
The paper said intruders tried to get into the Bovoni apartment of Elouris Carr, a nurse at Roy L. Schneider Hospital, twice in the last week. When they failed the first time, they returned with a crowbar, said Carr, who described herself as "devastated."
Acting Police Chief Jose Garcia said he expects to get more police cars soon, which will allow him to patrol the East End more effectively.
Murphy and Charlton had complained that it took police an hour to respond to their frantic burglary-in-progress calls.
