Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris’ home in The Bahamas’ Cable Beach was robbed a few weeks ago with the bandits getting away with $8,000 in home electronics and severely injuring the house caretaker.
Harris, who splits his time between his Bahamas home and a home in LA was not at the property at the time of robbery. A report by Tribune 242 states that on November 29th, sometime between midnight and 2am, the robbers sawed through the chains of the front gate.
The house’s caretaker, Philip Pierre, who has worked there for 47 years had a knife put to his throat and the bandits “and left him in a pool of blood wrapped in duct tape.” He survived, but was left traumatized.
Two suspects are in custody for questioning but no charges have yet been filed. About $5,000 of the stolen electronics, which include TVs and other appliances, were recovered. Obviously, the value of the goods is pointless for Harris. If it’s anything like the opulent country house Harris was selling last year, he will barely feel the sting of the theft. The true tragedy in the situation is that somebody got harmed while this was happening.
