IRON MAIDEN Bassist's Bahamas Property Raided By Armed Robbers

According to Tribune242.com, more than $8,000 worth of goods and electronics was stolen from a Bahamas property belonging to IRON MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris.

Police have two suspects in custody and are still searching for another man in connection with the robbery. In addition, $5,000 worth of the stolen items has already been recovered.

The incident occurred between midnight and 2 a.m. on November 29 when a group of men sawed through chains on the front gate of an old estate home on the Cable Beach property which was being used as a site office and storage facility for the furnishing of a 5,000-square-foot guest house.

"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."
