Apparently some idiots decided it would be a good idea to burglarize a residence in the Bahamas between midnight and 2 a.m. on the morning of November 29th, just one problem…that place belongs to Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris. He is building a guest house on the property and it’s being used as a site office and storage facility until the place gets furnished. Two men are already in custody and more than half of the stolen items have been recovered. It’s just a matter of time before they recover the rest, after all….they’re on a friggin’ island!
According to reports:
“They assaulted our caretaker, Philip Pierre, assaulted him, put a knife on his throat, and left him in a pool of blood wrapped in duct tape,” property manager Charles Beall, said.
“I have about 75 men that work for [my company] Clearwater [Construction], hardworking, honest, loyal men that know this old man and love him. They were furious when I told them that Philip was severely beaten and abused, so for three days we canvassed the island.
“When we found out who these guys were, we met with police and the head of the criminal investigation division at Cable Beach police station.
“They did an outstanding job, he gave me three of the best officers and they arrested one guy on Tuesday and on Thursday, four of us went and caught someone who confessed that he had a role in the beating and theft. We went into a building near his home and with police found much of the stolen goods.”
