The young mum and her child reside on their own in Vaima’anga, while her in-laws are away overseas.
The woman said she suspected someone had broken into their home after finding muddy boot marks on the concrete and mat at home.
Household items such as shampoo and conditioners had gone missing from the bathroom, screwdrivers and other tools from the shed, and assorted kitchen items.
“No food was taken, it was just odd stuff.”
She did not know who it may have been, though there were suspects.
But she did not feel safe anymore, especially for her son’s sake, and she hoped the culprit would own up.
She said she did not report the matter to police because the last time she complained about her property being damaged, she said, “nothing was done”.
After the last incident she drove out to the police station to report a foreigner who she alleged had damaged her property.
“And they arrived at my home, 1 o’clock in the morning, to take my statement I which never got reported to his parole officer,” she said.
Police confirmed that there has been no record of this burglary complaint.
