The bandits entered the home through a louver window after removing several panes around 02:30h. He is of the belief that the thieves had used sleeping gas to put his family in a state of unconscious stupor, making them unaware of what was happening around them.He explained that the criminals escaped with well over a million dollars’ worth of a quantity of laptops, cash, watches, televisions, music systems, cell phones and household appliances, all of which were purportedly packed into his car that they also stole.Basdeo recalled that after he had awoken he noticed a lot of things in the home were missing and immediately rushed downstairs to see if his Toyota NZE with registration plate PLL 8602 was there. It was not.After an alarm was raised, Basdeo found that the occupants of the bottom flat were also oblivious as to what transpired, lending credibility to his ‘gas’ theory. The occupants of the bottom flat found it strange that with all the commotion including dogs barking, they did not awaken, as would be normal for them. Fortunately for them nothing else were stolen except the clothes on the line.Upon examining the yard, the family discovered that the criminals had left behind their clothes.Basdeo summoned the police then conducted a search in the neighboring community. He retrieved his mangled car abandoned on Market Street, Annandale.

We are also cautious that 2011 may see volumes affected by the increase in VAT rate and the government spending review,” said chief executive Andrew Tinkler.The company said customers were demanding shorter lead times, as hard-pressed retailers ordered fewer items more often.Tinkler said this was giving the company less time to plan deliveries, leading to a lower vehicle utilisation rate.But Stobart said in the longer term it would benefit from the flexibility of its business model, which uses its own fleet and drivers, reducing the need to rely on subcontractors, and a pay-as-you-go system.Ben Whawell, chief financial officer, said the company had not seen much direct effect on volumes from reduced government spending so far, but that the size of the cuts expected from the government spending review might well have some impact.Stobart reported a 38.7 per cent jump in pre-tax profit in its first half to August 31 to £15.4m, on revenue from continuing operations up 11.7 per cent at £243.7m, with contract wins from Tesco and A.G. Barr adding volume and margin.Shares in the company tumbled 13 per cent on the release of the statement.Killick says the statement led to downgrades in forecasts by an average of eight per cent.
