The home of the president of the Used Car Dealers Association, Visham Babwah, has been broken into.
Babwah told CNC3 News that the burglars entered his Chaguanas home by cutting out a small portion of the burglar-proofing at the back door.
He said his security system did not alert him to the intrusion because the bandits did not pry open the doors or windows.
Babwah said that thankfully nobody was home at the time.
He said he and his wife left for work around 9am yesterday and his wife returned around 3 pm.
Since the house was not ransacked his wife only noticed that things were missing when she realized that their jewelry and a large quantity of cash were not in the places they left it the night before.
Babwah is asking the public to be on the lookout for high-quality jewelry that may be selling at a knockdown price.
He valued at least one of the pieces to be worth around $100,000.
He is also advising citizens to beef up security at their homes given how easily the robbers were able to bypass his security system.
